Tasting Note:

One of the Domaine’s flagship wines. Very classy, mineral and strongly limestone-influenced. Delicate light touch but with depth.

Great poise, length and intensity. A magnificent due south-facing parcel of 50 year-old vines towards the bottom of the Clos where the soil is redder clay than further up, with traces of flint and limestone. De-stalked prior to fermentation. Aged in 20% new oak barrels for 12 months followed by six months in tank.
