Les Teurons lies at the heart of the Beaune First Growths, and this plot adjoins the most famous one, Les Grèves. Partly the vines are protected, and warmed, by the side-walls of an ancient quarry, partly lying downhill from it, and are more than 50 years old. 40% whole clusters were retained for the vinification, then barrel ageing took place, with 40% being new, before bottling in November 2020. This is ruby of medium depth, the nose being clean, aromatic and fine. Palate shows strikingly rich body, with dense fleshiness and richly textured, freshly smooth aftertaste. This will make magnificent drinking (for drinking 2023-2030+).
