“I adore this vineyard,” says Jean-Baptiste, “with its small grapes and tiny bunches of Pinot, planted 40 years ago. Yield is always small. It’s my only regional wine, I’m always happy here.” The vines are to be found near the village of Ladoix-Serrigny, at the foot of the Corton hill. 20% whole clusters went into this cuvée, of which just five barrels were made, none being new. Colour is rich purple of medium depth, aromas attractively fresh and open. Palate has amiable, fresh-flavoured attack, with good balance and gentle aftertaste (for drinking 2021-2024+).
