The significant amount of clay in this terroir brings great substance and roundness and it is without doubt the richest and deepest Premier Cru. It is often qualified as very 'Burgundian' with its style richer rather than lively. From its early years, aromas of yellow fruits and apricot may be found, but also hazel and roast almond, with a flavoursome and concentrated palate. With time, notes of brioche and toast appear, while maintaining great freshness on the palate.
