Olivier Leflaive have been following this vineyard, with its conscientious grower, buying his grapes for 5 years. The well placed 1st Growth is on slopes just north of the village, near the road leading to Chassagne-Montrachet. Coming from 35 year-old, cordon-pruned vines (to restrict the yields), the plot gave less than 7 barrels in 2018. Bright purple, with dense, rich black fruits, it is a splendid mouthful. There is ripe fruit with rich body, juicy middle-palate and intensely fresh, harmonious finish (for drinking 2021-2027+).
