Soils

Chalky clay, marl, and marly limestone from the Kimmeridgian era (the upper Jurassic geological period, 160-140 million years ago).

Winemaking

Manual harvest in small cases to avoid compressing the grapes and bursting the berries. Aged for 14 months in neutral French oak barrels for 50% of harvest, and the remainder in stainless steel vats.

Tasting Notes

Powerful nose, combining aromas of citrus and white-fleshed fruit with a mineral note typical of the appellation. Rich and concentrated, the palate has remarkable freshness and length.

Points of Distinction

  • Situated where the slopes of Grands Crus grow
  • William Fèvre owns 23% of the total appellation
