From 10 year old vines on clay and limestone, the unlikely blend of moderate richness and tension from the solar 2015 vintage has surprised many people who were expecting differently due to the heat. Slow and low fermentation and aging in neutral barrel make this a unique and standout bottling for the appellation, not at all well known for its whites. Matthieu’s studies at the Viti à Beaune had him aggressively pursue making white, as he planted this vineyard a few years after returning from Burgundy. Chenin on limestone and clay, anyone?
