Review:
From 0.74ha in a single vineyard in Bussières, with a southwest exposure and thin clay soils over limestone, similar to those of Pouilly-Fuissé. The grapes are whole cluster pressed and fermented in foudres, to produce a wine with ripe apricot and citrus aromas, plus a rich but balanced feel on the palate.
