This single vineyard was planted in 1986 on white marl and limestone. It's a wonderfully mid-weight wine, with bright red fruit notes and chalky minerality. The tannin structure is sweet and delicate, and the palate is long, with refreshing acidity. This is a fantastic wine, ready to drink today.

17.5 POINTS, JANCIS ROBINSON
Deep crimson. A light smoky note of reduction (low SO2 and not much racking). Fabulous dry texture, with graphite, mineral texture. Not fruity or powerful but incredibly refined. ‘Tasted more in the throat than in the mouth’, says Liger-Belair and I think I agree. Very structured and dry and elegant. Peppery more in texture than in flavour. Fine granular texture. All about texture at the moment. Deliciously dry and currently rather closed.
