An aristocratic 2011 from one of the rising stars in Burgundy. From 35 year-old vines planted on the steep upper slopes of Santenay. The soil in this vineyard is a kind of limestone found in the Cote des Nuits but not elsewhere in the Cote de Beaune! The wine is firm and textured, with a finesse and depth comparable to some of the finest wines of Burgundy, but absolutely delightful to find in this modestly priced wine. This is the first vintage the domaine has been certified biodynamic, while the the vines have been organic since 2005. Grapes are strictly sorted and handled gently. Small bins are used for harvesting to prevent crushing the grapes and a conveyor belt carries them to wood fermentation vats. Only native yeasts are used to vinify and the wines are bottled unfined and unfiltered after aging for up to 18 months with about 30% new oak. A very fine Burgundy from one of the most brilliant domaines in Burgundy today.
