The vines lie in clay-rich soils on this first growth slope close to the Volnay-Pommard boundary. The wine shows the finesse, perfume and silkiness we expect from the former, with the density of the latter. The 2019 has a vivid purple colour, with a very pretty, concentrated aroma that combines ripe black cherries and violets. There is ample, dense, juicy fleshiness here, set within a fine framework. A wine with a charming, lacy character, supple tannins and a long, magnificent finish (for drinking 2024-2032+).
