With a prime position in the heart of the Butteaux vineyards, this over 60-year-old parcel, whose yields are slowly diminishing, deserves its separate vinification and maturation and delivers wonderful wines worthy of a Grand Cru vineyard.
Vinification & Maturation
In stainless steel tanks, for at least 12 months.
It opens with notes of condensed milk, acacia ﬂowers and liquorice. On the palate, maritime saline ﬂavours precede a warm ﬁnish, with jam and peach, baked apples, and tarte Tatin.
