The one time blend of the minuscule-quantities-but-profound-quality from his three best lieu dit Marsannay rouge parcels: le Clos de Jeu, la Charme Aux Pretres, and les Favières. I was positively cross eyed when I tasted this in tank last year; it promises to be the stuff of legend. It will, however, be terribly limited. I imagine that I will be lucky to get 18-24 bottles in total….I didn’t get to taste this out of bottle…….
“(this cuvée is named after Cyril’s daughter who was born in 2016 and includes fruit from Clos du Jeu, La Charme aux Prêtres and Les Favières; Audoin noted that he will probably bottle this only in magnum). A discreet application of wood sets off the pure extract of red cherry, currant and soft earth aromas. There is terrific intensity to the equally pure medium-bodied flavors that brim with both minerality and dry extract, all wrapped in a firm, dusty and strikingly long finale. This should age exceptionally well and especially so in magnum format.
