100% Pinot Noir from 1 h/a of vineyards in Ville-sur-Arce. Hillsides are steep; the kimmeridgian soils, shallow, a blend of either white or yellow clay and limestone. Raised in old barrique for nine months. Full malo. Non-dose. 2010 vintage, October 2012 disgorgement, 2014 release. Organic/BIO.
Gold. Time in bottle has brought out a sweeter straw and earthy organics. Ornamented and mirabelle-flavored, fat and full. Now.
Gold. Vinous, galvanic and clever, such is the yin-yang of snappy minerality and burnished swell. Boldly Aube, the generosity and sheer ripeness of fruit more than compensates for the lack of dosage. Crackery at the end. Now – 2020.
