2006 marks Vincent Dancer’s 10th vintage and in these 10 years he has certainly proved himself as a winemaker. He prunes severely, harvests by hand, ferments with wild yeast, and racks only once. Like Coche-Dury and other top producers, Vincent doesn’t fine or filter his wine (he stopped systematic filtration—except for his Bourgonge blanc - with the ‘04 vintage). He has moved from lutte raisonnée to completely organic in the vineyards in 2006. He’s careful with his use of new oak. Indeed this young man is careful about everything, as one senses immediately upon meeting him. His whites show great purity of fruit braced by minerality and often with a strong hint of lime. His reds are rich, dark, and spicy.
Planted in 1958 next to Goutte d’Or.
