    Les Greffieux is a lieu-dit where the soils mix alluvial Rhône stones and decomposed granite from a granite base rock. Bessards, where the soil and subsoil are both granitic, provides structure and backbone. The vines average 80 years of age and produced a perfectly balanced wine in 2012 with great texture, raspberry and black fruit, iron, hint of black pepper and fine grained tannins. For drinking now to 2027.

    Bessard and Méal produce a richer, more long lived wine than the G-B above with denser fruit again which takes longer to unravel. You can taste gorgeous rich, black cherry and mulberry fruit, with a liquorice darkness with spice, graphite and pepper, all the time beautifully focused and balanced.  It completely coats the palate and the finish goes on and on - very complete, exceptional wine that merits a place in the cellar of any wine lover. For drinking now to 2030.
