Like the last two years, this is a particular success, and we are delighted to list it again. It comes from vines which are more than 50 years old, previously owned by Thibaut’s uncle François Marion, who passed away in 2019. It takes plenty of sunshine, as in 2020, to bring grapes from this vineyard to perfect ripeness, as the vines lie high up on Beaune’s 1st Growth slope. One third whole clusters were retained for fermentation. Colour is purple-ruby of medium depth, aromas are delicate, fine and perfumed. Palate shows impressive attack, with concentrated, ripe fruitiness, well-matured tannins and fresh, impressive length (for drinking 2024-2036+).
