Brothers Jean-Louis and Alain have split the well-known family vineyards between them. Jean-Louis works with 6 hectares of vines and has built his own winery that was finished in 2004. As you would expect everything is spotlessly clean and well presented. The winemaking and ageing style is traditional, producing an elegant style of Puligny with very subtle use of oak. Jean-Louis believes that 2018 whites may surprise with their ability to age. He believes that when well-made, the whites of the Cote de Beaune have the capacity to cellar well from hot vintages, citing 2003 as an example of a vintage that has produced wines that have lasted the course more easily than many expected. Picking began here at the end of August.
“Really expressive aromas with lifted fresh citrus and peach on the palate. Slightly creamy texture, ripe but restrained and with a sense of energy.”
