This is the eastern part of the appellation where the soil is primarily limestone and marl from the Cretaceous Period at around 400 m. in altitude, providing freshness and minerality.
Age of vines & yield: Between 20 and 50 years. 31hl/ha.

Bright violet. A highly expressive bouquet displays mineral-driven red and dark berry, exotic spice and mocha scents, and a peppery nuance adds spicy lift. Sweet, broad and penetrating on the palate, offering Chambord, cherry pie and bitter chocolate flavors that tighten up slowly on the back half. Concentrated but energetic as well, displaying resonating spice and floral notes on a very long, energetic, youthfully tannic finish.
