This is a site that I came to know through the example made by Jadot. It is a fairly prototypical example of a lower slope Beaune 1er cru, in its moderately dark fruit character, medium plus density, and sense of lightly tannic structure. It is the southerly neighbor to les Tuvilains, fwiw. From 60 year old vines, so it possesses a mature sense of depth. In substance and value, hard to knock.
“Older vines here. A less-seen 1er that sits below Vignes-Franches.
Some spice from the oak is the first aromatic impression but with, overall, plenty of freshness. Fuller in the mouth – an extra clarity and attractive openness to the flavour – this is excellent – a 1er you don’t see so often but this is lovely.” Bill Nanson
