This village is tucked out of the limelight in a side valley between Meursault and Puligny-Montrachet. The soils are made up of limestone clay and the average vine age is 48 years old for this bottling. After the grapes are hand harvested they undergo native yeast fermentation in barrel and 100% malolactic fermentation. They then age in French oak casks, of which 10% is new with no bâtonnage. The wine is lightly fined and filtered before bottling.
Aromatically this wine lifts from the glass with gluttonous notes of baked butter pastry, vanilla, cinnamon, and stewed apples. The palate is bold with flavors of orchard fruit, clotted cream, and a light dancing of lingering minerality.
