Situated next door to the Grand Cru vineyards, this vineyard produces some grand wines. This wine comes from the Olivier Leflaive domaine. It has richness and concentration with beautifully dense yellow fruits that are cut with inspiring acidity. The texture shows minerality and a taut and nervy character that will allow this fine wine to age very well. Drink from 2020.
