Jean-Marc purchases fruit from a friend who owns a parcel of 110-year-old vines in this well-situated premier cru, and from it he crafts a wine of mineral-driven intensity, aging it entirely in previously used barrels and bottling it after an 18-month élevage—the same length of aging as his more expensive offerings from the Côte de Beaune.

BH 88-91 Points:  This is sufficiently reduced to overshadow the fruit yet hints of straw and citrus do peek through. The wonderfully refined and definitely denser flavors possess even better minerality that seems to become more prominent on the bone-dry, focused and chiseled finish. This is almost Chablis-like.
