A really special vineyard, green sandstone shale, sometimes with purple passages and often with phtanite rocks. Vines are 60 years old. 26 months total elevage; the wine is fermented and raised in a mix of anfora, ceramic eggs and demi-muid. This is superb, very poised with floral and faint citrus aromas. Superb in balance and tension with much more to come over the years. This has Grand Cru levity - super pure, tight and bright - could be Anjou Perrières!
