From a small-is-beautiful .19 hectare parcel of 60+ year old vines, this reference point quality example of the little seen Combes Dessus was first vinified separately in 2015 thanks to the new small tanks that were added to the winery after its full renovation in 2013. This sits right at the border of Pommard/Volnay, contiguous with Volnay 1er les Brouillards.
“A mildly toasty nose features notes of menthol, spiced tea, red currant and a hint of cherry liqueur. The velvety, rich and seductively textured medium weight flavors possess the usual muscularity of a Pommard 1er, all wrapped in a robust, mineral-driven and youthfully austere finale. (90-92)/2027+” Allan Meadows
