This wine is the result of a blend of five different blocks all located at the top of Chambolle's slopes. They have of a north-east exposition which allows them to benefit from nice sunshine. The soil is made of clay and limestone and is very rocky, which confers to the wine this mineral caracteristic of the appellation. The average age of the vines here is 45 years old. Global size : 1 ha 85 .

Wine SpectatorA juicy, cherry-laced red, with accents of flowers and mineral. Still firm, this tightens up on the finish, suggesting the need for short-term aging. Fine length. Best from 2015 through 2022. 830 cases made.

BurghoundA discreet touch of wood spice sets off very fresh and bright red pinot fruit that is both elegant and admirably pure. There is a lacy mouth feel to the quite finely detailed middle weight flavors that possess good precision and fine depth before terminating in a naturally sweet and sappy finish. Lovely juice.
