Winemaker Notes :
From a parcel of Le Petit Pretan that is not 1er Cru, it is a fresher, more brightly-stained version of its 1er Cru cousin, with a mouthwatering combination of fruit and game. This wine has outstanding energy and a high pitch to the very pure red berry and floral flavors. Tactile, palate-staining wine.
Impressive, sappy and alluringly perfumed with plenty of summer pudding fruit, notes of rose petal and violet and subtle vanilla oak. The tannins are very fine here, complemented by chalky minerality. Textured, youthful and long on the palate, this would reward cellaring. Drinking Window 2019 - 2025
