Tasting Notes:
The top Premier Cru in the range, until the creation of Empreintes at least, was either Cellier aux Moines or Servoisine, depending on your preferences. More Chambolle than Gevrey in style but a fraction of the price of either and with an elegance other wines from this far south can only aspire to with red-black fruit and the most refined tannic structure of any of the wines. Its intense fruits with violet combine in a palate that's oh so smooth and delicate but not without substance. What a mass of wonderful contradictions! Hints of underbrush and more to come but, for now, there is a silkiness coating my mouth and some perky acidity dripping from the sides of my tongue that makes me want to come back for more.

All wines from this estate

Drinking Dates:
2024 to 2030+
100% Pinot Noir
Grapes are 100% destemmed. After fermentation, wines spend 16 months in assorted oak barrels (Francois Freres). Decidedly non-interventionist winemaking.
Critic Reviews:
"There is good freshness and verve to the relatively refined, intense and delineated flavours that terminate in a delicious, detailed and energetic finish. This possesses slightly better underlying material and the dry extract does a fine job of buffering the moderately firm tannic spine on the appealingly lingering finale." 92/100 (Allen Meadows, Burghound)

You must be aged 18 or over to purchase wine.
