This vineyard is one of only two Premier Cru vineyards that is contiguous with Volnay. Great location as the lynchpin vineyard between Meursault and Volnay! As such, the wine has considerable finesse to balance its power.
Tasting Notes
Blackberries and black currants on the nose. A structured wine with notes of forest floor and mushrooms. Intense. On the palate, it has softened tannins and is very smooth. Wonderful, silky finish.
