Before deciding on the blend for this wine, the produce of the estate’s youngest vines, along with any Pinot bunches showing less than perfect ripeness when checked on the sorting tables, were eliminated. For this final blend, two separate cuvées have been assembled together. One comes from recently planted Pinots (aged between 5 and 9 years old) growing in shallow soils towards the top of the Clos. The other comes from deeper soils in the mid-part of the slope, from old vines planted in the mid-1970s. Colour is a lively, deep purple-ruby, with aromas showing pungent, ripe fruitiness, with freshness. A proportion of whole bunches was included in the fermentation, adding complexity. In the mouth, this has magnificent structure, which is well-sustained through mid-palate, culminating in supple tannins and delicious, fresh length. This is a strikingly lovely wine, and superb value (for drinking 2018-2025+).
