Done in collaboration with Jean-Marc Roulot, is produced from 40 year old vines in mineral soils with alluvial stones covered in calcaire. The wine is intense and energetic, high pitched and lively, round and austere, refined and mineral. It has a dry mouthfeel and a saltiness natural to the area.

"This is a dense and integrated chardonnay with a solid core of fruit that is stratified and solid. Full-bodied yet agile and polished. Lots of honey, vanilla and cream, yet delivered in a a subtle and refined way. Complex and satisfying. A great new chardonnay from here. Collaboration with Roulot of Burgundy. 4,000 bottles made."
