  • For laying down

Description

This site was planted in or around 1945. The Rions have used some whole bunches here to balance the softer style of the cuvée, providing more structure and minerality. The raspberry fruit fills the middle of the palate, leading to an exquisite finish.
Drink 2022-2030.
Jasper Morris MW, Wine Buyer

With more than 35 vintages under his belt, Patrice Rion considers that 2015 is the finest of his career, offering elegance, acidity and persistence. They began picking on 5th September and finished before the rain which arrived the following weekend. The only sorting that needed doing was to remove any dried-out berries. The yields were acceptable, just 10 percent down in volume on the previous vintage. Unusually, Patrice and his son Maxime have used some whole bunches on certain cuvées, notably the Clos des Argillières and Clos St Marc.
