This is a village wine from the single vineyard of Le Vaucrain in the village of Comblanchien. The vineyard is sloping and littered with small stones, and abuts and is an extension of a highly regarded premier cru of Nuits-St.-Georges
The 2021 vintage was memorable for the extreme challenges it posed to growers. The defining event was a hard freeze in April which lasted several days, and the subsequent dramatic reduction in harvest volumes. Added to this were cool and wet summer conditions which required constant vigilance. The delayed harvest eventually yielded tiny volumes of pristine grapes which express a vibrant and energetic purity.
This wine presents fine floral and tangy cranberry notes on the nose, and a sleek yet firm texture. Never heavy, this is none the less quite concentrated and complex, with elegance and length.
Best with precise cuisines possibly with chile nuances. Also versatile enough to accompany sushi or baked fish in sauce.
