A delicious rarity from a parcel dating back to 1110, this covetable white wine is one of the most intriguing in Burgundy. The nose is refined, with uplifting aromas of pear, citrus and white flowers. The deep gold color hints of the richness within, the opulent mouthfeel, and the distinguished, refreshing finish. Centuries of nurturing have gone into this magical vineyard, and that care shines through in an unforgettable wine.

Wine & Spirits

The Boisset family owns two parcels on the north side of the road leading up to the Clos de Vougeot. Together, they account for 4.83 acres, the vines planted between 1983 and 1996, farmed under biodynamics. This wine spends 18 months in oak barrels, one-third new, taking its bold and exotic fruit in the direction of fresh cream, pistachio and hazelnut. The flavors have the yellow tartness of Buddha's hand citrus and underripe pineapple, their zingy apple and mineral-tinged acidity tending to the sophisticated richness of the wine. It's juicy as you breath in, tense as you breathe out.
