Terroir

Clay and limestone; more clayey at the bottom of the parcel and very calcareous at the top. Elevation mid-slope.

Tasting

Aromas of pear and pineapple with an ample and complex palate and a finish in minerality. To be appreciated young or also when older, depending on one's personal taste.

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.
