Description

Sylvie Poillot, General Manager, farms the estate’s 42 hectares biodynamically. “We do this to preserve the fertility of soils, and to have a very good balance between the soil and the plant’s health,” she explains. It’s not just the soil health that’s changed: two decades on from their conversion to biodynamics, the wines are evolving too: “The wines are more aromatic and more expressive year after year,” she says.

This is sourced from two parcels, 0.2 hectares in all, both on the Chassagne side, planted in 1970 and ’85. The wine has a nose of orange blossom and barley sugar, but there is good freshness too. Well-judged. Drink 2025-2035.
