  • Red | Case of 6

    Red

    70+ year old vines always give great concentration to this cuvée, and this was furthered by the conditions as they cropped at just 25hl/ha. Dark, dense, and broad on the nose, a full-bodied palate continues the dark them with some sweet richness but also a cool elegance. There is a pleasing chalky grip, and the palate builds in structure but the depth of fruit gives a svelte feel and the tannins remain rather fine. Very long and ‘very Bourgogne’. 0-7 years.

    Red

    70+ year old vines again, they use some whole bunches and the wine was raised in demi-muids and less than 10% new oak. Offers a lovely sweetness to the nose, pretty dark fruits, with some wildness and high-toned red notes. The palate is sweet-framed and voluminous, seductive and cool, with lots of chalky grip, tantalising acidity, and spice. Shows very good energy and follow through, and genuine lift. Louis reckon this “could do 30 years”. 0-7 years.

    Red

    10-40 year old vines, this offers a gorgeously ripe quality of wild strawberry fruit but also elegance and restraint. The palate is less tannic than it can be, with super verticality, a sense of precision and finesse, with a notably mineral thread and more red fruits throughout. Joyous, elegant and long. 0-7 years.

  • Red | Case of 6

    Red

    45 year old vines and a smaller cuvée which typically produces 600 bottles. Cool, dark and focused on the nose, pretty compact and tight showing a little smoke and oak. Full-bodied and open but also seriously structured with some tension. Elegant, restrained, super concentration and notably fine tannins. Lots here but it will need time “c’est vrais serieux”. 3-9 years.

  • Red | Case of 6

    Red

    75 year old vines and a generous, plump and rounded personality to the nose. Very pretty, fragrant red fruits and lots of crisp black fruits, a juicy and floral quality and great purity. There is scale without density, a playful tension, and a supple structure. Stimulating stuff, very attractive and especially fine. 3-9 years.
