About the wine
Mainly sourced from a parcel of vines abutting the southern end of Chassagne Montrachet and just under 1er Cru Clos des Tavannes, called Prorons Dessus. Brown limestone soils similar to those of the Côte de Nuits. 30-50% new oak for up to 12 months. Light filtration at bottling.
This enjoyable cuvée has less complexity than a 1er cru, a rather dense ruby hue, and aromas of strawberries and cherries which recur in the mouth and are set off by perceptible but discreet tannins which testify to regular and complete ripening. A quaffable wine which can be enjoyed from its third year but can still surprise after several more years' keeping.
