From vines planted between 1999-2004, the grapes for this wine come from two parcels. Sur Lyas benefits from a southwestern exposure with typical marnes clay soil. En Champaux is exposed to the southeast but the soil is composed of clay and limestone. Hand harvesting is de rigueur and the grapes are de-stemmed by hand except for a small layer of whole clusters that are placed in the bottom of the vat. This serves as a slow release of sugar to keep the vat bubbling along during the fermentation as well as giving the finished wine the added airy spiciness that comes when ripe stems are kept in the vat. The wine is aged in stainless steel vat for 10 months before bottling. The yields were only 26HL/Hectare. 200cs produced from .80 hectares.

The robe has a brilliant cherry colored hue while the nose shows fresh berries, cherries and a bit of spice. The mouth shows cassis, spice and some earth. Ready to drink now, it will age gracefully for 3-5 years.
