The newest appellation, formed in 2000.
Tasting generalities are thus confined to recent days. It seems that the tannins are more firm and the aromas more earthy than our “Bourgogne du bas”.
The balanced texture is surprising for a first vintage. This wine took marvellously well to barrel ageing (40% new oak). Its moderate acidity makes it a wine for drinking young.

This 1.73 ha single block parcel is situated in the commune of Concoeur just above the village of Vosne-Romanée. Originally bare of any vines, it was planted in stages. (96, 97, 98).
Chardonnay vines make up 1 ha on the upper part of the slope, where the earth is deeper and more humid (this is where the water of the hillside resurges). The 0.73 ha of Pinot Noir were planted on the lower, flatter part of the parcel, where fossiliferous lava is in great abundance and assures excellent drainage.
