Released a year later than other premier crus, this is a flagship wine for the producer. Close to the magnificent grand cru slope, the vineyard has produced a ripe wine offering yellow and melon fruit accented by vanilla and spice. While rich, it also has great poise with a good streak of acidity and minerality. Drink this wine from 2020.
