This wine comes from two plots, one being 25, one over 60 years old. Bouley tells us that the vines are planted on a concave hummock which adjoins the village, and is the most northerly section of Les Rugiens Haut. Soils are very thin, often no more than 10cm. covering the bed-rock, into which the vine roots must penetrate, for moisture and character. This was 100% de-stemmed, with care being taken to retain as many unbroken grapes as possible, to go into the vat. Colour is red-purple of medium depth, with fine aromas. The palate is well structured, with superb fruit density and striking freshness. The finish shows gentle tannins, with lively, magnificent length (for drinking 2025-2045+).
