Barrel sample. 'Positive hail' because it was like nature's green harvest. 30% whole bunch. 40% new oak. 1.49 ha (3.7 acres). He is the biggest owner of the 6.3 ha (15.7 acres) grand cru. 45- to 70-year-old vines, always blended.Mid crimson. Dark fruited and spicy, balanced by a lifted stemmy freshness. Chewy but fineboned tannins, really dry and has elegance in a whole-bunch style. Aromatic and with a dry chalky texture on the mid palate that increases the freshness. Has both delicacy in the texture and power in the length. Difficult to describe. Winemaker Benoît Stehly finds blood orange in this wine and I agree when he suggests it. Lovely subtle aromas. Drink 2025-2035.

Divided between three parcels totalling 1.4ha, this grand cru was picked first in 2017, which is highly unusual for Clos St-Denis. It was still showing some meaty reduction in barrel, but has appealing strawberry sweetness, subtle 40% new oak and a bit of refreshing sap from 30% stems.Drinking Window 2024 - 2030.
