    Ludwig bought this steep, south-west facing 0.5 hectare 50yo vineyard in Poligny four years ago. The vines here are essentially planted in broken up limestone with marls at depth. In this first vintage Ludwig made just four barrels that he topped up to avoid any oxidative effect and bottled in April 2015 with very low sulphur. Quite gras on the attack, the acidity follows closely behind, with typical gentle stewed lemons and bitters on the finish. Another brilliant example of this phenomenal grape variety. For drinking now to 2020.
