The last five vintages of this wine have been snapped up for their deliciousness and value. These Pinots were planted in 1969, in shallow, red soils which are rich in clay and ironoxides. The vines lie on a mini-plateau, just downhill from 1st Growth Clos des Montaigu. They are now being cordon-pruned to restrict their yields, so production has dropped, to just 7 barrels in 2017 – of which two were new, two a year old, and the balance 3-years-old. This 2017 shows rich purple colour, with finely complex aromas. Palate has fine fruitiness, good density and gently tannic aftertaste (for drinking 2019-2023).
