We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

The wine is made from a blend of several different vineyards: Les Communes, Les Saules and Les Bossières. The soils of these parcels are all very similar- clay and lime mixed with marl- and all enjoy a full eastern exposure. The average age of the vines is about 50 years old. The fruit is put in tank without any crushing. A cold soak follows, then the alcoholic fermentation takes place with very little intervention,with pump-overs and punch-downs as needed. The wine is then gravity-fed into French oak barrels (70% one-year-old, 30% new) for malolactic fermentation and aging. Bottled at the beginning of March.

Wine SpectatorAn opulent style, with black cherry, black currant, violet and spice aromas and flavors. Balanced, with the dense tannins lending an impression of power and plushness. Reveals a pleasant mineral underpinning. Best from 2017 through 2030. 20 cases imported.
