Press / Wine Critic's Reviews
Notes from the Winemaker:
The deep color shows a remarkable stability during ageing. In its youth, the wine expresses a certain sobriety. Earthy nuances and wild fruits such as prune mix with strawberry and several floral notes.

Nature of the Soil :
Oligocen marly formations are present, but they are covered by clay and red silt with chert beds, by deposits from ancient alluvial cones made of gravel and silt, as well as by alluvial river sediments from the valley of Meuzin, the river that divides the Nuits vineyards in two zones: North and South.

Total Surface : 17 ouvrées (1 ouvrée = 4 ares 28)
Grape Variety : Pinot Noir
Average Age of the Vines : 68 years old

Harvesting : Manual only
Average Production : 4200 Bottles.

Ratings & Reviews

90-92 Points - Antonio Galloni's Vinous:
"(from 60+-year-old vines on the north side of the village, worked en fermage): Bright ruby-red. The nose conveys a sexy coolness to the aromas of blackberry, violet, white pepper and crushed rock. Then surprisingly supple and creamy in the mouth, but with its sweet blackberry fruit energized by bright acidity and supported by a firm tannic spine. A very suave, long Nuits villages." - Stephen Tanzer (Jan 2016)

91 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Reserved, yet broad and dense, this hints at black cherry and black currant flavors, with earth and spice accents. Tightens up on the finish, where spice notes linger. Best from 2019 through 2032. 40 cases imported." – BS (Oct 31, 2017)
