The vines have been organically farmed since 2001. Upon opening, this wine is characterized by lavish fruit but has the capability of aging quite well. Made from Pinot Noir grapes; grown on soils of Clay & limestone. Fermented in stainless steel tanks, using naturally occurring yeast. Aged in French barrique, 60-85% new. Aged for 18 months. Bottled unfined and unfiltered.

VinousBright ruby-red. Subtle perfume of raspberry, red cherry, rose petal and flinty minerality. Silky on entry, then less sweet and more soil-driven in the mid-palate than the Clos de la Roche. But this impeccably balanced wine boasts an insidiously tactile mouth feel and opens out spectacularly on the back end. Finishes wonderfully juicy and suave, with noble tannins and a sneaky whiplash of flavor. I'd love to try this wine next to the Clos de la Roche again in ten years. 93-95 Drink 2017-2029

BurghoundA completely different aromatic profile is present here with its notably more elegant and expressive nose of various floral elements that include lavender and rose petal along with various spice and red berry fruit scents. There is a terrific sense of underlying tension to the precise, racy and focused middle weight flavors that are notably finer than those of the Clos de la Roche but at the cost of being notably less powerful. I very much like the superb persistence and fine balance and even though the tannins are quite fine they are also notably dense and as such this too is absolutely going to require plenty of patience. 93-95
