The only vineyard the estate currently has in Morgon, it is a parcel next to Chaos with Yann’s vineyards on the Fleurie Morgon appellation border. This 1.2 hectare site plot is comprised of 60+ year old vines planted on granite and schist soils rich in iron oxide. Elevage in a mix of old barriques and Demi-muds of at least 5+ years of age followed by 11 months aging in bottle prior to release. Vibrancy on the nose. Graphite tannins, elegance despite the power. Concentration and spice level upped here, yet still with the freshness. A vein of acidity and mineral kicks at the back. Fluid. Moving through the day, plums, concentrated dark fruit, tannins dip and dive yet remain feathery. Brooding, fruit into mineral with crispness.
