Two-thirds of this vineyard are planted with very old vines (aged 60 years or more), the balance with vines aged 35+. This is once again the most richly structured wine in the Clair cellar – magnificent, though more backward than the family’s Premier Cru Clos de la Comme. Colour is very deep, ruby-purple, aromas show complex fruitiness with spiciness already coming. Attack on the palate is rich and powerful, with splendid fruit intensity and pure, softly modelled, gentle tannins to finish; its freshness is simply delicious (for drinking 2024-2030+).
