From the northern slopes of Nuits-Saint-Georges, where the hillside runs along towards Vosne-Romanée’s greatest plots, this steeply-sloped First Growth produces outstanding wines. Vines are nearly 60 years old, and the wine has been ageing in 50% new oak barrels. Prior to 2014, the vines were rented out to a share-cropper, who kept half the production as payment. Now the family cultivates the whole plot, and has been able to bring about cultivation improvements. The wine is one of our favourites in the cellar, and never disappoints. The only downside in 2019 was the yield. Due to drought and heat, only 12 barrels were produced, where a generous harvest may give nearly double that. Colour is ruby-purple of medium depth, aromas show fine, well-ripened, delicate fruit. Palate is rich and lively, with intense fruitiness, gentle tannins and superb harmony (for drinking 2024-2035+).
