    This comes from 4½ hectares of vines averaging 50 years of age.  There is just 30cms of pebbly topsoil then a 1.25m bed of broken up stones overlying Bathonian limestone.  Yields are low (just 34hh in 2011) and the wine was vinified then aged for a year in older oak, followed by a further six months in cuve. The balance of this wine is excellent, it has very natural, ripe but zesty citrus fruit tethered by an insistent mineral undertow and you don’t notice oak at all. For drinking now to 2018.
