Curiously, this premier cru vineyard of Chardonnay is close to the village of Gamay. It has produced a crisp wine, layered with new wood flavors that need to integrate. When that happens, it will be a warm, ripe and open wine with citrus and yellow fruits. The aftertaste gives promise of some good aging. Drink from 2019.
