Jean-Baptiste Clair tells the story: “My father bought this part of the mountain at auction in 1994 – when it was thorns, box-bushes, pebbles and scrubland. But it was a good idea – land was not so expensive as it is today. It was planted in 1996, the first harvest being 1999”. It is less than 1/5 of a hectare, sometimes giving four barrels, but in 2019, just three. Colour is pale, lemon-gold, nose extremely fine, palate is excellent, from start, through middle, all the way to the definitive end, which has freshness and length (for drinking 2021-2026+).
