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 this particular cuvée garnering an impressive 92 points on robertparker.com.
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: October 2019.
