Located on a steep hillside just south of the hamlet of Blagny, this stony vineyard is consistently the last to be picked by the Domaine, as extra time is needed to ripen the grapes fully, at 400m altitude. The vines are now more than 30 years old, and the wine has aged 12 months in oak, of which 15% were new barrels. Colour is lemon-gold, the nose having open, fully ripened aromas. The palate is rich, with lively, intense fruitiness, and lots of energy on the finish. “Serve this with sashimi, or roast langoustines,” suggests Gérard Boudot (for drinking 2016-2021+).
