This 1st Growth Beaune lies on a gentle slope between two other 1st Growths, Les Avaux and Les Teurons, near the edge of town. The Bouley vines are located on the lower part of the vineyard, on a sunny, free-draining plot. It was one of the first vineyards to be picked, and 50% whole clusters were retained for fermentation, bringing freshness with aromatic complexity. Medium deep in colour, aromas are fine and lively. Dense fruitiness on the attack leads into well-sustained layers of flavour in mid-palate, then softly tannic, mouthcoating aftertaste (for drinking 2021-2029+).
