Clos du Cromin is a walled site within the larger lieu-dit of Le Cromin, situated immediately upslope from Bitouzet’s other Meursault parcel, Les Corbins in the northern sector of the appellation. Planted in 1951, Bitouzet’s third of a hectare of Chardonnay here yields a more mineral-driven, structurally stricter wine than Les Corbins, yet one which still shows ample flesh despite its youthful reticence, developing with time into a rich, well-balanced wine with a long finish. It spends 16 months in 20% new oak and is bottled after the second winter following harvest.
