This exceptional cru is widely known as producing very complex wines, and here has produced a wine from vines of 45 years of age on average. Again we find this unique soil: rocky, stony, well-drained and comprising a variety of Bathonian stones. All the length and complexity of this cuvée comes through in an agreeable, amiable wine, open and already aromatic. It also has great cellaring potential.
Vinification and aging:
The harvest is completely destemmed before being placed in the vat. Fermentation starts naturally thanks to indigenous yeasts.
In March, after 6 months of aging and following the auction, the acquired barrels leave the Hospices cellar and settle in the cellar of Château de Charmont, next to the Premiers and Grands Crus of Maison Edouard Delaunay.
The wine finishes its aging in its original barrel or is re-intoned if we deem it necessary for its good development.After 9 months of aging in our cellars, the wines are then ready to be bottled and reach the cellars of our customers.
The estate produces 140 barrels each year, divided into 18 vintages.
