The Belland family has an acre of vines in this prestigious Premier Cru. Ripe while shot through with intense acidity, the wine is finely balanced. Touches of wood aging give the wine a creamy toasty texture. That contrasts with the more mineral fruity character that leaves the wine crisp at the end. Drink from 2018.
