Comprised of rare Pinot Blanc in Burgundy (from a third of a hectare of old vines planted over 70 years ago by Jérôme’s grandfather near their home in the village of Prémeaux-Prissey) blended with around one-quarter Chardonnay from the lieu-dit of Aux Cachottes at the southern end of Prémeaux, below Clos de la Maréchale and Les Vignottes. Though clearly expressing the underlying limestone, its fruit tends to be more pit-fruit-driven, slightly waxier, and with a whiff of exotic flowers not typically associated with Côte d’Or Chardonnay. The old vines lend body to this typically lightweight varietal, making it suitable for barrel fermentation and ageing (with no new oak). Given the low yields, only a handful of barrels are produced each vintage.
