This vineyard is one of the highest Premiers Crus of the commune, and always one of the last to be harvested. The soils are thin and pebble-rich, giving wines of intense fruit, which can be dense when youthful, even initially a bit austere – but they mature superbly. For this 2019, all stems were removed before fermentation, and the wine has aged 60% in new barrels. Colour is rich purple, with aromas being closed when tasted in October 2020. Palate shows bright fruitiness, with the characteristic lively character often found here. In a hot summer like 2019, this vineyard benefits from cool air coming down the valley (for drinking 2024-2032+).
