Comes from several parcels including from Clos des Hates which is located beside one of Muzards best 1er cru sites, Clos Faubard. From 3ha of vines with an average age of 60+ years, spread over 3 parcels: one in the north near Chassagne, one in the centre near the village and one in the south which borders on to 1er cru Clos Rousseau. Hand-picked and sorted, the fruit is 60% destemmed-but-not-crushed and 40% whole bunches, wild-yeast fermented. Gently plunged for 15-20 days, then pressed to 30% new French oak barriques for 12 months maturation. Total production of this cuvee averages 750 cases per year.

‘Keeping freshness and a little co2 without too much oak.’ A more vibrant and attractive nose. Supple, silky – lovely depth – just a little growth of structure in the middle – a fine finishing wave of faintly creamy old-vine flavour in the finish – yes the average over 70 year-old vines here…’ Bill Nanson, Burgundy Report, December 2018
