Biodynamic. Here we have a wine that is grown in one of Mâcon’s very best sites. Les Quarts is sectioned into four lieux-dits (or historic place names): Haut, Bas, Le Clocheton and Les Quarts Touches. This is a blend of those parcels which do not make it into La Soufrandière’s Les Quarts cuvée. Planted at 230 metres altitude on classic Bajocian clay and Jurassic limestone soil, this beautiful slope has been certified biodynamic since 2006. The 2020 was vinified mainly in tank (60%) with the balance in older barriques. The Domaine uses no new oak by the way, with the barrels in the cellar having an average age of 10 to 12 years. As well as ex-Leflaive and Lafon barrels, the Bret brothers also buy used 300-litre casks from Olivier Lamy.

Reviews

“Outstanding. Top Value. This too is sufficiently reduced as to be hard to read aromatically. Otherwise, there is better density and borderline painful intensity to the mouth coating flavors that exude a bracing salinity on the chiseled, refreshing and beautifully long finish. This boxes way above its weight and is absolutely recommended.” 89-92 points

“A noble reduction – ooh! – that’s so good! Mouth-filling again – minerally mouth-watering – the accents are all citrus – the wines here are so good but with such a similar quality that it’s hard to choose between them – on the positive side – I could buy blind!”
