Terroir

Magnificent terroir of white marls high on the hill-side and facing south. Very calcareous ground, with good drainage, allowing harvests at optimal maturity.

Tasting

The expression of this exceptional white wine is mineral, with white flowers and fruit (peach, apricot). The persistence on the palate is infinite. It is one of the loveliest white wines of Burgundy which may be tasted young and which gains in complexity and richness as the years go by.

Vintage

A precocious spring led to an early growing cycle. Unfortunately a cold snap set upon the flowering, which took away hopes of good yields. Vines were then hit by hail on the 28th of June the storm fell from Meursault, corton, lowering yet again the quantity of grapes. We harvested from the 18th to 26th september, with half the normal crop though picking at perfect ripeness. The reds have a great aromatic complexity and silky tannins, whites have freshness and a density. The wines are tasting very well at the moment.
