Monopole and a walled vineyard (clos) in Bizay, replanted in 2003 with massale cuttings from the family’s old vines in Brézé. Clay and limestone topsoil over chalk.

Tulip yellow.  White-bedrock masterpiece in small form, narcissus and flowing silver, firm and tuffeau tangy.  The finish is a meringue with herbs, dusted with titanium.  Now – 2020+.
