Product: 2017-0750-00-1055942
  • Ready, but will improve

Description

They aren’t especially old vines here, having been replanted after the frosts of 1985, although the vineyard was spared last year. Situated immediately below Mazis, this is more aromatically understated but has a lovely, effortless intensity. Drink 2022-2027.

For Nicolas, with the domaine’s focus on biodynamics, this was an année calme, a welcome respite between 2016 and 2018. His biggest challenge was to manage the pruning of the canes affected by last year’s frosts, so a green harvest was necessary as well. Harvesting started on 5th September in their Beaune-Teurons. He opted for lighter extraction this year with no punchdowns, but some délestage (rack and return) for aeration. Nicolas feels the style is very close to their 2016s. It is certainly a fine range this year and proof that good vineyard work was key to success.
