A Single owner, a Single village, a single vineyard, a single grape, a single year and five different wines.

The vineyard is split up into several subplots to produce the five cuvees: Blanc de Noirs, Les Sens Boises, Rose de Saignee, Millesime and Brut Nature.

The soil is made up of alternate layers of clay and chalk and offers the drinker a fascinating way of exploring terroir in an unspoilt way.

The wines are produced with Burgundy in mind.

I have had the wines on a number of occasions and have been very impressed with the complexity of the Brut Nature with notes of bitter lemon, roasted nuts and a surprising balance of sugars. The Blanc de Noirs layers white fruits and peaches, Les Sens Boises gives you white pepper and an explosive mid-palate but along with the Rose de Saignee they lack the finesse and complexity of the Brut Nature. A real example of letting the soil say what it wants to say.
