Like “le Clos” from a little further down slope, this could be picked blind as a Cote d’Or, it has so much raspberry and strawberry fruit with spice and minerality without any overt “bunchy” notes (it’s 100% whole-bunch with 1% chardonnay included).
“Bright cherry red. So fragrant, floral and prettily spiced. ‘Could be on the Côte d’Or’, says seasoned burgundy and beaujolais merchant Roy Richards. Wonderful purity on the nose. On the palate, really spicy and so tangy, with zesty yet deep red fruit. Intense, lively and scented on the palate too, with definite but elegant structure and a long life ahead. Utterly mouth-watering and so persistent. Gorgeous." - Julia Harding MW (Jancis Robinson).
Now this note above is for the 2017, but it sounds like I’m reading a note for the 2021!
This site is near the summit of Mont Brouilly, it has a very steep 50% slope, and the bush-vines are an impressive 60yo average age.
The blue volcanic rock-shot soil provides the minerality, the depth and juicy fruit density comes from the impeccable viticulture provided by Sojna Geoffray, and the perfectly judged velvety structure comes from some well-considered and expert winemaking from Claude-Ed and his family.
