This Premier Cru is found mid-slope on the border between Meursault and Puligny-Montrachet. The slope is very regular at between 3% and 6% and the soil is clay/limestone with red earth. The subsoil is a mixture of earth and flat volcanic rock which allows an extensive root system to develop. These conditions bring finesse and a touch of minerality to the wine.
The wine has pleasing citrus and mineral notes, rich without being heavy. Notes of hazelnuts appear after 8 years or so in bottle.
It goes very well with fish, shellfish and foie gras.
In general, the wine should be drunk within 4 to 8 years after bottling but may be kept for up to 15 years, even longer for some vintages.
Wine should be a sophisticated drink, rich but always refreshing.
