About the wine
This fine 1er Cru site is located in the area of Gevrey-Chambertin known as the Côtes St. Jacques, near the top of the vineyard slope and adjacent to the Combes aux Moines 1er Cru. This particular wine is sourced from a tiny parcel of less than half a hectare. Vines 45 years old on average. Natural yeast. Matured in 35%-50% new French oak. Bottled without fining or filtration.
This vintage was extremely tormented by the climatic conditions with heavy rainfall throughout the cycle vegetative. Only August and September experienced favorable weather conditions. Hail ravaged the Volnay - Pommard - Beaune - Savigny Les Beaune sectors. However, with the experience of the previous vintage, winemaking was approached this campaign more calmly. Although yields are once again relatively low, the harvest has been magnificent.
