This is a tiny-production, ultra-premium Pinot Noir made from a special 80 year-old vineyard between Gevrey Chambertin and Fixin.

The vineyard, called Croix Violette in Brochon, sits on a small plateau, with very fine soil. Laurent says it is a dream to work with every year, producing beautiful grapes with small berries and good concentration.

Laurents gives the grapes the VIP treatment in the winery, with 20 months ageing in new French oak. He bottles it with no fining and no filtration, to keep all the amazing flavours intact.

Laurent describes this as a “gastronomy wine” - perfect for your next 3 star Michelin experience. Failing that, just keep it for a nice occasion with a special meal like a good cote de boeuf, and you’ll do it justice.
