MATURING: 9 to 10 months in French oak, with up to 15% new oak, depending on the vintage, and for 3 to 4 months in stainless steel vats.

AGEING: The cellars of the Bastions of the ancient Château de Beaune offer natural ambient conditions that are perfectly adapted to ageing the Premiers Crus.

Elegant bouquet of fruit and flowers. Round and silky on the palate, this wine is very charming. Good ageing potential.
