This vineyard lies in a fast-draining sector of Echézeaux called En Orveaux, where the sun strikes powerfully. The vines often used to suffer from water stress, giving slightly dry wines, with unyielding tannins. A new approach has been in place since 2008: in the vineyard, soils have been covered in mulch, to limit evaporation; in the winery, extraction has been fine-tuned. Purple-ruby of medium depth, with richly ripe, floral aromas, this shows admirable structure, with succulent fruit, fine tannins and intricate, fresh aftertaste. This is an alluring wine of great finesse, for medium-term ageing (for drinking 2021-2030+).
