"This is from 3 separate vineyards that are fermented together. 1 vineyard is in the commune of Prehy where there is more clay in the soil and the fruit from here gives the wine its minerality. Another vineyard is in Fonteney and has a lot of limestone in the soil giving the wine its acidity. The last vineyard is in the commune of Lignorelles and this site always gives generous fruity notes. Right now, I think the Lignorelles is the strongest of the 3 personalities meaning the yellow fruits of peach and ripe pear dominate the nose. On the palate, the mineral and acid components show up as 2012 is such a classic vintage."
