Tasting Notes

With fruit sourced from a handful of old vine parcels, average age 60 years, aged for just under a year with 20% new oak. A beautiful glowing colour, with a nose packed with crushed rocks, wild fennel and celery salt and dusty florals. The palate is flavour-packed and with good concentration - fine tannins with a hint of grip, and a tease of meat juices, squishy berries and charcoal.

More Info

Philippe switched a high-flying career in insurance in Paris for taking over his family domaine in the village of Nantoux, a stone's throw from Meursault. The estate has grown under his stewardship, taking their vineyard holdings to 13ha in 6 villages across the Cote de Beaune. They are HVE certified - or Haute Valeur Environmentale - an alternate environmental certification to organics centred on the principles of agroecology. Zero use of herbicide or insecticide, the adoption of low impact techniques and great importance placed on improving soil health, its water and CO2 holding capacity, and  improving biodiversity in all areas.
