60% whole bunch. Just six barriques. Not a registered name; a commercial name. Racked and in tank. Just beside the winery and walled.
Deep garnet. Sweet and fragrant in a floral sort of way. Masses of opulent fruit. Very burgundy but very ready! Very distinctive style with great freshness but already accessible. Long and vibrant. Jancis Robinson
(production here was 30 hectoliters per hectare, which winemaker Michel Mallard describes as "the closest to normal" in 2016; this wine and the following cuvées were vinified with 60% whole clusters): Bright medium-dark red. Aromas of black cherry and licorice are lifted by a suave floral element. Juicy, spicy and intense, with a positive hint of greenness energizing the dark fruit and mineral flavors. A step up in punch from the basic Vosne villages, this sappy midweight finishes with excellent length and lift.
