These vines lie in a sun-catching amphitheatre adjoining Meursault 1er Cru Les Perrières. When you climb the slope, you can understand why the vineyard is named “under the donkey’s back”, as the vines are sheltered to the north by a huge, long hummock of stones and trees which resemble the slumbering animal. 25% of new barrels were again chosen for this wine’s ageing, and their presence is imperceptible, so well have all elements now come together. Colour is bright, green-gold, aromas complex, ripe and spicy. Palate shows broad attack, with lovely, well-rounded follow-through and splendid, succulent finish (for drinking 2022-2028+).
