The “Pierreux” vineyard lies below the south base of Mont Brouilly with very stony, chalk soils. The harvest undergoes a semi-carbonic maceration of whole clusters over 2-4 weeks in concrete and steel tanks, with twice daily pump-overs and is bottled with a light filtration and minimal sulphur. The wine is powerful yet briskly mineral-driven—cool-toned and stony—with tight-grained dark fruit and tons of spice; indeed, notwithstanding its lighter emotional pitch and tannic structure, it may strike one as the southerly country cousin of Morey-Saint-Denis.
