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 table, were eliminated. Two separate Cuvées have been assembled together, for this final blend. One comes from fine Pinots aged between 6 and 10 years, 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. A carefully-judged one third new barrels were used for the tending, sourced only from the best coopers. Neither fining nor filtration took place, the wine was allowed to fall bright in tank for 6 weeks prior to bottling, after 16 months ageing in small, and 400-litre, barrels. Colour is bold, deep purple-ruby, with perfumed, ripe, black cherry aromas, very fresh. Fruitiness on the palate is ebullient, with body and gentle tannins in perfect harmony. Aftertaste is gorgeously long and soft. Availabilities are limited, so please let us know your wishes as soon as possible. Highly recommended in both bottles and magnums (for drinking 2019-2025+).
