Planted over 80 years ago, this is a unique 1.5ha located on the southern part of the appellation that is protected from the windmill and the prevailing northern winds. This positioning allows more maturity and concentration to the grape clusters with its southern exposure.  The soils here are quite diverse with a variety of granites common to Moulin à Vent (pink and quartz), Fleurie (yellow granite) and Chenas (blue granite) of Beaujolais that all add distinctive aspects to this final wine.

Press Notes:

88-91 points – Burghound - “A fresh and restrained blend flashes notes of both red and dark currant along with plenty of earth. The rich and relatively refined middle weight flavors possess excellent punch though not nearly the same mid-palate concentration and it shows up on the linear and slightly lean finish. This is certainly pretty and well-made but it's not at the same level as its cohorts.”
