The Wine:
This terroir lies at an altitude of 270 m. The plot is adjacent to Morgeot de Chassagne, on a gentle slope with an easterly exposure. Marly-clay soil, with limestone within ploughing distance. The estate cultivates 1.49 hectares, the average age of the vines is over 70 years, pruned in cordon de royat. The soil is ploughed, the vines are disbudded, lifted, thinned out, aerated and harvested by hand. The grapes are never crushed, but mostly destemmed, with around 30% of whole bunches. Alcoholic fermentation is carried out with indigenous yeasts. After 18 to 20 days, the wines are devatted and blended with free-run and press wine for ageing in Burgundy barrels, 15 to 20% of which are new. Aged for 12 months.

This wine reveals aromas of black fruits. On the palate, a generous body is revealed, imbued with beautiful fruit and supported by supple tannins.
