With vineyards in Aÿ on the southern slopes of the Montagne de Reims, Goutorbe is well placed with grand and premier cru sites. This is a premier cru wine, concentrated and with bottle age. Touches of toastiness are balanced by the continuing fresh, fragrant acidity and crisp citrus. The bottling is ready to drink.
