The 50yo vines are planted along the road from La Rochepot to Saint-Aubin, lieu-dit Les Genouvrées Au Sud. At 320m altitude the soil is white, 'terre blanche' of medium depth, it has a lot of stones and fossils. Aged for 14 months in 30% stainless steel and 70% old 350ltr barrels. It is racked for clarification in the spring, neither fined nor filtered as per all cuvées but bottled with a light 'sulfitage de protection' (15 mg/l). The wine feels very close to the grape on the aromatics, silky and ripe on the palate it is perfectly balanced by savoury and lip-smacking acidity.
