Sourced from one a hectare lieu-dit “Le Riziere”. 55 year old vines on white clay with crumbly schist and sandstone. Elevage in used barriques of 5+ years of age.
Fruit and minerality, terroir focused with beautiful freshness. Integrated, the fruit is long, crunchy red apples. As it opens more fruit and florals, a chameleon. Serious with structure, yet a soft edge. To decant or not, it sings either way.
