This wine comes from low yielding, organically tended vines on a south facing limestone hillside. Aged half in cuvee and half in 3-5 year old barrels it has ripe fruit, nicely cosseted by a refreshing saline quality emanating from limestone.
This wine comes from low yielding, organically tended vines on a south facing limestone hillside, and we love the fact that the independently minded owner Franck Richard does everything according to his own feel and doesn’t lean on an oenologist. Aged half in cuve and half in 3-5yo barrels it has ripe fruit (low sulphur), nicely cosseted by a refreshing saline quality emanating from limestone.
Taking over the domaine in 1998, Franck and his wife immediately began farming organically, obtaining certification with the 2010 vintage. Most of the vines inherited from the previous generation are still there and their average age is now 45yo which would put many Grand Cru Classé to shame. Vinification and élevage are as gentle as possible, the aim being to make wines that are pure and express all the freshness of their terroir.
