The Desvignes family have been making wine on this 11 hectare estate for five generations. Gautier joined his father Eric there in 2016 and has pushed the estate to new heights, insisting on hand harvesting in small bins, a more organic approach to viticulture and building a new cellar for a gentler élévage.
The resulting wines have been receiving superb reviews, with robertparker.com declaring the estate "very much a Côte Chalonnaise address to watch" and a "potential future star".
The wine is drinking beautifully already but will improve through to 2030 if you can tuck it away. As it stands, it is full, fresh and beautifully balanced with bright cherry fruit, floral notes and a rich juiciness that keeps you coming back for more.
Offered: November 2020.
Vintage report: Plenty of rain during the winter served the vines well during a long, hot summer. The result was a high quality, bumper crop.
Drinking window: 2020 – 2030. Ideally, towards the end of that window if you can hang on.
