Bright violet. Highly perfumed red fruit, spicecake and rose pastille aromas show very good lift, focus and energy. Bright and nervy on the palate, offering sharply delineated red currant and bitter cherry flavors, along with a subtle touch of blood orange. Lingers with resonating red fruit character and building spiciness on the taut, gently tannic finish, which shows excellent tension and mineral cut.
Guy’s grandfather handed down the two parcels that go into this wine: one with 100-year-old and the other with 35-year-old vines. The shallow soil of sand and decomposing stones gives the vines easy access to the bedrock, creating firm wines with more grip and acidity than in Morgon.
