These grapes were harvested from two 40-year-old plots which lie downhill from Chassagne’s road to Santenay, 3/5 coming from Les Platières, with the remaining 2/5 being tiny Pinot grapes from Les Lombardes. Both are pruned by the Cordon de Royat method, which helps keep the bunches airy, and limits yield. Natural yeasts have transformed the sugars, and limited punching down results in a wine of medium-deep, purple colour, with fine, brightly fruity aromas. Lombardes has brought structure, and Platières the concentration. The palate shows fine, fresh fruitiness, elegantly built, with gentle tannins (for drinking 2020-2026+).
