Description

Our approach to both viticulture and wine-making is aimed at preserving in the wines the purest expression of Nature with minimal interference from technological practices.

We have a pragmatic approach to viticulture and we favour hand work and preventive protection methods in the vineyard. The purpose is not to eradicate pests and diseases but to preserve or restore a rich and active ecosystem.

With healthy and ripe grapes grown on the greatest terroirs, wine-making only has to be kept simple and respectful.

The geological stratum on which the Clos de la Maréchale is situated plunges well below the surface of the soil further south, marking the end of the Côte de Nuits, only to reappear in Le Montrachet between Puligny and Chassagne. Therefore one is not surprised to find the same qualities of power and longevity in these wines.

Review

In much the same fashion as the 2020 version, there are whiffs of slightly riper exotic fruit present on the white and yellow peach, passion fruit, citrus peel and soft wood scents. The equally rich and succulent medium-bodied flavours are energetic if not exactly racy on the lingering, refreshing and relatively powerful finale. While this could be approached now with pleasure, I would suggest holding it for at least a few years first.

Tasting Profile

Palate
They are wines that always need 5 to 10 years of aging before expressing their typically floral character: “The bouquet of the 1er crus of Premeaux is remarkable and persistent: one finds the aroma of iris mingled with raspberries. Even more so, that of white lilac.
