The grapes come from a single vineyard located between Premeaux-Prissey and Nuits-Saint-Georges. The domaine bottles this vineyard separately because the parcel always has a special quality. The soil here is a marly-limestone. The average age of the vines on this block is more than 60 years old. Global size : 0 ha 57 . 100% whole cluster, 15% new oak. Dark fruit on the palate, plums and blackberries with a hint of sour cherry. Structured.

"(100% vendange entier; tasted from tank): Dark red with ruby tones. Deeper on the nose than the village Vosne, if not iniitially offering the same éclat of that wine; dark berry aromas are complicated by emerging notes of licorice, violet and mint. Plush and broad but quite airy and dry, offering an intriguing combination of thick texture and crunchy fruit. Plenty of stuffing for its ripe tannins. Displays a mineral quality on the spreading, glistening finish. The pH here is a rather high 3.77 but this wine does not lack for energy."

"This too is super-fresh with its notably floral-inflected nose of earth, dark currant and a hint of humus. The highly energetic and decidedly more powerful flavors manage to remain on the refined side for a Nuits villages while exhibiting plenty of persistence on the mildly rustic finish where a hint of bitter cherry emerges. This quality effort should benefit from up to a decade of cellaring."
