Picked on the afternoon of 16 September, the morning of 17 and all day on 18 with the young vines only brought in on 14 September. The 50-year-old vines yielded 23 hl/ha and 994 cases. Deep crimson. Rather more savoury than usual on the nose. But on the palate it’s so rich you could so easily drink it tonight! Such a seductive wine… Utterly sensual in terms of ripe fruit and length. Rich and perfumed. Just absolutely what we all seek in a red burgundy: rich fruit and yet delicate. Restores one’s faith in burgundy.
