This vineyard is situated at the heart of the slope, just south of the village. Blain-Gagnard’s holdings are in two plots, running from the bottom to the top of the site, giving an intricate wine of great complexity. Partly the soils are white, with many pebbles; then higher up, they are marly, with fossil shells. Production is 40% down on a normal year, but the wine is gorgeous: pale gold in colour, freshly aromatic, with rich body and many savoury layers of fruit intensity and vivacious length (for drinking 2021-2028+).
