Old vines contribute density and concentration to this white premier cru that is otherwise known for its elegance. It has aromas and flavors of yellow apples, white peach and with firm acidity and layered minerality. Aging in 30% new Burgundian pièce brings notes of vanilla and toast. Food Pairing: White Burgundy, with its rich texture and toasted flavors, pairs well with white fish and shellfish, and its naturally high acidity can counterbalance cream-based sauces. Oak-aging lends itself well to grilled fish, starches, butter, and toasted nuts.

Wine SpectatorA big, opulent white, packed with lemon, peach, baking spice and mineral flavors, backed by vibrant acidity, with a finish that goes on and on. There is a lot of complexity and nuance here in addition to power. Best from 2020 through 2030. 304 cases made.
