From vines planted in 1970, this is one of Burgundy's hidden secrets and value unicorns. Claude farms without chemicals, and prunes aggressively to ensure very low yields of high quality. Fermentation in open wooden vats with ambient yeast. Elegance personified, beautiful perfume of ripe red cherry, cinnamon and baking spice as well as cracked pepper and a touch of anise seed. Smooth, fine tannins with a rather dignified, earthy finish.
