From just south of the run of Grand Cru vineyards, this wine is ripe— full of sun as well as acidity. Juicy with swathes of lemon and crisp green apple fruit, it's textured, tight and likely to age well. The estate has been owned by Nuits-St.-Georges-based Domaine Faiveley since 2014. Drink from 2020.
