2020 Clos De Tue-Bœuf La Gravotte
A cuvée of mainly Pinot Noir with a little Gamay, grown on a soil of flinty clay over white flinty chalk known as craie de Blois.
The vines are around 40 years old. The vines are co-planted, meaning that all grape varieties are harvested and vinified at the same time. Viticulture and vinification are 100% natural. Yields are around 30 hl/ha on this 1.2-hectare parcel. Matured 6 months in demi-muid and Burgundy barrels. I am very happy to have this wine for the first time in a long time, it takes some convincing for them to part with it and I suspect most of it gets consumed at the winery - it is a silken, sensual delight!
