    I am a longtime fan of this domaine. This, their non-sulfured edition from Lavières, is quite a beauty. If you can find this particular bottle, run and buy boatloads. This is fermented with 100% whole clusters and aged in barrel for 18 months in 10% new oak. It’s in the same vein as the Chanterêves and with its silk and spice and liveliness, will convince you that Burgundy remains worthwhile.
