This comes from a plot which is high on the hillside in the commune of Bouze-lès-Beaune (altitude 399 metres), vines being between 6 and 25 years in age. All grapes are hand-picked, then 50% whole clusters went into the vat, to bring perfume. 12-month ageing has taken place in 1-year-old 500-litre barrels purchased from Domaine Clos de Tart in Morey-Saint-Denis. Colour is bright purple of medium depth, aromas are fresh, ripe and open. This is full-bodied, with good structure, brightly fruity, with fine balance and lively aftertaste (for drinking 2022-2025+).
