This 1st Growth Beaune lies on a gentle slope between two other 1st Growths, Les Avaux and Les Teurons, near the edge of town. The Bouley vines are located on the lower part of the vineyard, on a sunny, free-draining plot. It was again one of the first vineyards to be picked, and 75% whole clusters were retained for fermentation, bringing freshness with aromatic complexity. Purple-ruby of medium depth, this has lively fruitiness on the nose, with a hint of liquorice. Palate is well-structured, with concentrated fruit and appealing, soft freshness (for drinking 2024-2032+).
