A tiny 0.3 ha 20yo vineyard in Château-Chalon on stony limestone-rich marl, this is a special terroir tucked away, up a cool and humid combe surrounded by a lush and biodiverse forest. Taken over in 2012 the vines have never seen any chemicals and the only two neighbours are friends sharing the same sustainable approach. Packed with jolting acids and a dense texture it is reminiscent of a perfectly ripe apricot with salivating bitters, vanilla bean and fresh almond aromas sustaining a lengthy finish.
