This appellation is located on the slopes to the west of Burgundy’s Côte de Nuits. The climate here can sometimes be rough, with cold, snowy winters and cooler summers. Consequently, the grapes tend to ripen slower. The resulting wines are marked by their freshness, fruitiness and vivacity. Our know-how allows us to carefully and subtly balance these characteristics for added roundness and fullness.
Very fresh, with intense notes of fruit (blackcurrant, blueberry) and lily. Although full-bodied, this wine boasts a lovely vinous profile.
