From 2 parcels (Les Drazey and Les Gamaires) below Bonnes Mares planted in the 1950’s and 1960’s totalling 1.48 hectares. A deep, rich and generous Chambolle of great finesse and class.
‘(from 50+ year old vines; 80% whole cluster). This is also very ripe though it stops short of jamminess with a liqueur-like quality to the black cherry, violet and spice scents. There is both excellent intensity and delineation to the medium weight flavors that flash a touch of youthful austerity on the lingering finish. Drink 2025+.’ (88-91) points.

‘The 2018 Chambolle-Musigny Vieilles Vignes contains 70–80% whole-bunch fruit. It has an airy nose with black cherry fruit mixed with cola and pressed violets. The palate is lively and sweet on the entry, offering dense black fruit laced with blood orange and tangerine. Firm and quite structured on the finish. Give it two or three years in bottle. Drink 2022-2032.’ (87-89) points. Neal Martin, Vinous.
