Tasting Note:

A lot more brooding and mineral compared to the joy-filled sunshine of Referts. This is a wine that crisply articulates its rugged, rocky origins. After a quiet start the wine gently expands. Displaying a controlled, calm intensity this offers flavours of minerals and crushed stones with a background of yellow plum and citrus. Everything is in perfect harmony here. A wonderful, sophisticated wine to dwell on. One of the top vineyards in Puligny, next to Caillerets, from a high up parcel where the soil is poor and stony but well exposed to the sun, situated in the northernmost corner of this great vineyard, right next to the Leflaive vines - above Clos de la Garenne.
