Most négociants own some vineyards. In Beaune, they own pieces of the most famous, like Clos des Mouches and Vigne de l’Enfant Jésus. Wines of both colors reveal tremendous minerality and lovely palate tension. Stash away the best for a decade.
This cru sports the characteristic sappiness of top Beaune reds (emphasized by the sprite 2010 vintage) along with a pleasantly round palate.
