    This comes from one of the best sited of the 1er crus - on quite a steep southerly facing vineyard planted in fragmented Kimmeridgian limestone, there is literally no visible soil in the Oudin’s vineyard. It comes from 50 year old vines, has a gunflint quality on the nose, then ripe citrus fruits with a marked salty, chalky flavour on the palate. For drinking now to 2021+.
