" Allen Meadows says: "(from a 1 ha parcel of 25 year old vines, planted 50% to chardonnayand the remainder to pinot noir. The soil here has a much higher percentage of clay, is deeper and as a consequence, the vines never suffer from heat). Decidedly bigger and richer than the Champs Gain and this is much more in the style of the Chassagne villages with its very ripe though fresh fruit aromas and big, robust, muscular flavors underscored by excellent length and powerful finishing acidity. This doesn’t offer the finesse and elegance of the Champs Gain but the flavor authority,underlying material and exuberant personality are impressive." (Burghound, 3rd Qtr, 03)"
