Tasting Notes

When to drink
Enjoy now or cellar for 1-2 years
On the nose
From three parcels, including one heavier clay on limestone in an old parcel of Hubert’s gives some heft to the finished blend. Plenty of crunchy berries, with a lick of spice.
On the palate
A palate of bright ripe red fruits – plums and raspberries, bound by nicely structured tannins.
Product Notes
This is a blend of the Volnay Bourgogne lieu-dit Les Longbois – an historic De Montille parcel – and two parcels around Puligny. The fruit's quality was that Brian took the unusual step to use one-third whole-bunch, which lends a little twist of freshness and structure to the finish, balancing the ripe red berry fruit to give a rather serious Bourgogne.
