This wine is the result of a blend of five different blocks all located at the top of Chambolle’s slopes. They have of a north-east exposition which allows them to benefit from nice sunshine. The soil is made of clay and limestone and is very rocky, which confers to the wine this mineral caracteristic of the appellation. The average age of the vines here is 45 years old. Global size : 1 ha 85 .

"Not surprisingly this is aromatically more elegant with its cool and pure aromas of essence of red berries and lilac scents. The round and seductively textured medium weight flavors exude a fine bead of minerality on the appealingly detailed, sappy and punchy finish. This is also quite refreshing and utterly delicious."

"Dark red with ruby highlights. Very good floral lift to the aromas of cherry, raspberry and licorice. Fresh and brisk but pliant on the palate, with an easygoing sweetness to the flavors of dark berries and flowers. This should drink well young."
