LE GRAND, LE PETIT & L'UNIQUE
The classification of our wines is quickly explained:
The label "Le Grand" is reserved for our Grands Crus, our great growths.
Wines that we would prefer not to sell, but to drink ourselves.
You will find the label "Le Petit" (The Little One) on our local sites, our cru qualities.
These are lighter, elegant wines that make you want to take the next sip.
Our "L'Unique" wines come from our Village qualities. They are wines that are more accessible at an early stage and have a high level of complexity.
Le Grand Chardonnay:
A character Chardonnay with pronounced minerality.
92 points (2013 vintage)
92+ points (2016 vintage)
Le Petit Rouge:
A light, finesse-rich, yet sophisticated Pinot Noir. The Rouge does not hide its cherry fruit and is simply fun to drink with its balanced acidity and tannin structure. At least for us.
Parker rating: 88 points (2014 vintage)
