The grapes for this cuvee hail from vineyards from the base of the wine-growing slopes of (in decreasing order) Marsannay, Nuits-Saint-Georges (Prémeaux side), and Maranges, composed of mostly clay and marl soils mixed with limestone. The blend offers an excellent cross-section of the Côte d’Or nuanced terroirs. 100% de-stemmed fruit from vines averaging 35 years. This classic Burgundy is an absolute pleasure. Silky and soft on the palate and bright and fresh at the finish, it has generous notes of juicy red berries and a gamey, sanguine quality that one typically finds in fruit from the Côte de Nuits. This is far more than your average AOC Bourgogne.
