These vines lie in a sun-catching amphitheatre adjoining Meursault 1er Cru Les Perrières. When you climb the slope, you can understand why the vineyard is named “under the donkey’s back”, as the vines are sheltered to the north by a huge, long hummock of stones and trees which resemble the slumbering animal. Normally this plot will give 12 barrels, but the yields were so reduced in 2014 that only 8 have been produced. Colour is green-golden, with the nose showing opulent, fully ripened character, very fine. First impression in the mouth is of sumptuous richness, with some severity at the end – but elegance and silky texture dominate all! This will age well, but it may be hard to resist enjoying it, from the moment of shipment (for drinking 2016-2020+).
