Tasting NotesThe vineyard was acquired from Henri Boillot in 2014, farmed biodynamically with vine age ranging from 20 to 65 years, on the mid-slope of Savigny with excellent drainage and limestone rich soil. The aromatics are striking with complex floral perfume intermingling with raspberry, dusky plum and white strawberry seeds. Energetic, elegant, rounded, fresh and structured, with that balance of delicacy and concentration that speaks truly of the Côte de Beaune. You can decide whether to embrace its youthful charms or celebrate its inevitable glorious maturity. Alcohol 12.5%
