The Grande Reserve vineyard is located on the western side of Chablis, toward Auxerre. The chalky slopes are very similar to the famous Montee de Tonnerre. It is hedonistic with an extraordinary nose. Cherry.
No filtration in this vintage so good body and chewiness. Good length. Pinot Noir from Burgundy of this quality at this price is so rare. It's joyful and full, and classy, with a lovely hint of oak. It comes from vineyards that were famous in the 19th century that were forgotten and have now been re-planted.
