This comes from 8 different plots of 40- to 100-year old vines. Many are planted with the Pinot Noir Magnien, whose existence dates from 1850, yielding grapes with thick skins, giving little juice. 12-15% whole bunches went into the fermentation vat this year, and this has brought a wine of rich, purple-ruby colour, with open, abundantly fresh aromas. Palate is intense and attractive, with very pretty roundness, gentle tannins and a fine finish (for drinking 2019-2027+).
