Estate vines in lieu-dit ‘Préau,’ in the village of Brochon that borders Gevrey-Chambertin, were planted by the family in the 1950s and 1960s. East-facing, the plot sits on a gradual slope between 900 and 960 feet above sea level; soils combine limestone, marl and clay.
Hand-harvested grapes are destemmed and fermented on indigenous yeasts in tank. The wine is aged in French oak barrels, with approximately 20% new wood. Bottled unfined and unfiltered.
Aromas of black and red summer berries, licorice, light earth and baking spices. Smooth, with medium tannins; flavors of red berries, juicy plum. Pairing suggestions are roast lamb; beef in sauce; aged French cheeses.
