These are the oldest vines owned by Pierre-Yves having been planted in 1900. This vineyard is on the eastern extremity of Santenay, abutting Chassagne 1er Cru Morgeot. The soils are a combination of marl and calcaire giving a wine of finesse and depth which while showing well young also have the ability to age well too. Made using 50% whole bunches in 2017.
’Over one hundred year-old vines, the problem is that we don’t have an exact age – when I started with my father in 1995 and they were already over 100, there’s only 2-3 % of replacement vines in the parcel.’ Caroline made the wine – 50% whole-clusters.
