This the second harvest when Thibaud has been able to acquire grapes from a vineyard which he has now secured on a long-lease, from 2021. We went to find him picking the grapes during his first harvest. The vines lie high on the Corton hill, facing due east to catch the first rays of the sun as it rises. The bunches gave 5 barrels in 2020, of which two were new, with 40% of the clusters being retained for fermentation. Colour is ruby-purple of medium depth, aromas ripe and spicey. Palate shows dense fruitiness, with supple, creamy texture, superb length and great freshness (for drinking 2025-2040+).
