There are two sectors in this vineyard, half being nearly 60 years old, the other rising 20. Limestone content in the soil gives this red Auxey vitality and delicate perfume. The grapes were in excellent health, so a higher proportion than usual of whole clusters were included for fermentation, without de-stemming (25%), to bring supple texture, freshness and spicy aromas. This wine has real energy and length. Attack and middle palate are impressive, with the finish being fine and fresh. Highly recommended for both medium and longer term (for drinking 2023-2028+).
