Les Grèves is the largest of the 36 Premiers Crus of the Beaune, which earn this distinction in part for their hillside exposure to the sun. Grèves refers to the small, sandy stones that make up this vineyard’s soil. The Pinot Noir grapes are fermented in tanks and the wine is matured in oak barrels for 12 to 15 months before bottling.
This medium-bodied wine is lush, plump and seductively fruity, with cherry and raspberry aromas and flavors and fine structure. It will develop favorably in the bottle for 12 to 15 years.
