Terroir: Located on the side of Chassagne-Montrachet, this vineyard grows on white and very calcareous soils. The steep slope gives early maturity. It has become a very famous terroir for the last fifteen years.
Vinification: The parcels are hand harvested and undergo alcoholic and malolactic fermentation in barrel. The Maison restricts the use of new oak to just 15% to retain vineyard character. The wines age for 12 months in barrel before a gentle fining, blending and finally bottling.
Nose of peach, ripe apple, vanilla, enhanced by notes of dried fruits, it reveals great aromatic fullness and richness on the palate with discreet sharpness that gives a beautiful finish.
