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, which is a sunny, free-draining plot. It is always one of the first vineyards to be picked, and the grapes were so beautiful in 2017 that 50% whole bunches could be included, for fermentation. Colour is medium-deep, red-purple, aromas were elegant, yet fleeting, when tasted in barrel. Palate then came through strongly, with luscious start, rich middle and complex, fine length (for drinking 2021-2029+).
