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. Total holdings, 1.85 hectares. 80% whole cluster, 15% new oak.

(88-91) points
"(70% vendange entier): Bright red-ruby. Very ripe aromas of black cherry, violet and bitter chocolate. Plush, fat and sweet, offering lovely fullness and roundness for village wine. A rather dark-fruit style of Chambolle villages, finishing with serious but fine-grained tannins and very good length."
