    • Situation
    • This wine is characterised by its freshness, and the remarkable presence of aromas. A fine consistency, too, which contributes to the balance of the wine and its great drinkability.

    • From the very beginning, the freshness of the aromas gives the wine a lot of charm that's quite hard to resist. But it gains in balance after 4 or 5 years in the bottle.

    • Gentle, without too much new oak.

    • The natural acidity it draws from the terroirs of Marsannay ensures good natural extraction and usually there's no need to try and push the grapes to their limit.

    • In Marsannay, the vineyard is often young; our vines are about twenty years old and certain parts of our vineyard have been replanted with a selection we made ourselves using our finest vines. Ripening here is good and you even have to be careful not to harvest too late.

    • Our plots are situated in the lieu-dit "la Varangée” in Couchey. They ripen well but at the same time, are not early-ripening. Other vines, particularly "les Récilles”, situated in the centre of the appellation, provide a complement which is sometimes a little riper.
