(2023) From 25-year-old Romorantin vines, this aged 12 months on the lees in 500 litre, locally produced oak barrels. An extra creaminess and touch more opulence than the Lucé cuvée, but still that lightly bready and waxy character and earthy wild yeast note too. Lovely in the mouth, with an intensity of citrus and fine purity. Again it has that structure with some fine tannin, but smoothed by the time in barrel into a long, gently spicy but very clear and pure finish.
