This vineyard is a Monopole, meaning it is solely owned by Thibaud’s family. It lies on steeply-sloped land between First Growths Taillepieds and Bousse d’Or, in one of the village’s sweetest, First Growth spots. The vineyard is partly 30 years old, partly 55. Unusually, the rows of vines run from north to south, meaning that grapes are regularly shaded from sun-burn – contributing to its unusually vibrant freshness. It was 100% de-stemmed, then aged 30% in new barrels. Colour is medium-deep, ruby-purple, aromas very fragrant. This is a charming wine of great elegance, but with splendid potential for ageing – quintessential Volnay, one may say (for drinking 2023-2035+).
