    Les Corvées is one of the finest lieu-dit vine yards in Arbois, with south-west facing hillside vineyards and loose gravelly soil overlying marls. This comes from very old vines (50 and 85yo), and was aged in  recent foudres, with a low level of SO2 added at bottling. There is very good depth to the fruit with exotic and citrus fruits to the fore, good tension with smoky and mineral notes adding an extra dimension on the finish. For drinking now to 2021.
