A .8 acre grand cru parcel, lieux-dit ‘Les Maillerettes’, planted in 1970. 100% Pinot Noir from vintage 2008. Disgorged April 2013. Dosage: 5 g/l.
Straw-gold. Composed and vinous, his layered dark red fruit etched by a pronounced chalkiness. First-rate aromatic detail. Sleek, galvanic ’08 structure. Repeating notes of aniseed calls for some patience. Will still improve. Now – 2025.
