This clos grows at a lower elevation than Fussière and borders Santenay’s Clos Rousseau premier cru. Surface is 3.5 acres and average age of vines is a respectable 65 years. The wine tends toward red fruit (Fussière tends toward black) and is a structured, old-vine creation.

"Smooth and polished, offering black cherry, blackberry and spice flavors, with a hint of wood smoke. Balanced and persistent on the fresh, mouthwatering finish. Drink now through 2024. 800 cases made."
