The Marquis de Laguiche vineyards, with a great stock of premier and grand crus, have long been managed by Drouhin. This wood-aged, generous and opulent wine is already smooth and rich. Yellow fruits have a tight, tense texture to go with their open character. The wine is just beginning to develop its intense complexity. Drink from 2019.
