Produced from a mere 10 hl/ha after the hail. Really this wine is a thing all of itself. A cool Charlemagne-like expression with the sleek fat body of a Puligny Pucelles. Sensational. Drinking range: 2020 - L&S (Nov 2015)

(just eight hectoliters per hectare produced due to the hail): Good medium red. Ripe aromas of strawberry, mocha and earth. Surprisingly supple and pliant but with good grip and acidity to the cherry, licorice and spice flavors. Finishes clean if a bit folded in on itself, with a positive peppery accent. Frédéric Drouhin told me that new leaves appeared on the vines two weeks after the hail and were able to ripen the fruit that remained, which he credited to the Drouhins' organic viticulture.

Small production. 7 ha but hail damaged. 12 months in oak. Very subtle nose: creamy, smoky, fragrant with a hint of orange and quince. Lively, bone dry, sustained without great concentration on the mid palate. Really moreish and a great balance between fresh and creamy. Drinking range: 2019 - 2022 Rating: 16.5 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com (Jan 2016)
