A cooler terroir that is further up in the upper Combe of Marsannay; The cooling winds from the Hautes Cotes blow down and delay ripening. This is the last parcel to be picked! Sometimes by ten days. The cooling winds also minimise rot. The soil is shallow with many small marine fossils (Ostrea acuminate) and the wine is aged in demi muids to preserve fruit and minerality. More of a dark fruit profile with aromatics of ripe plum and plum bramble. The palate is succulent with fantastic lively fruit laced throughout. A balance between jubey and fresh fruit. A whisper of underlying brooding fruit gives a lovely and intriguing character. The palate is fresh that leans towards refreshing austerity. Lovely freshness with a hint of cool mint zippiness.
