The domaine’s outstanding “Cuvée Prestige” comes from three steep hillside parcels of Cabernet Franc planted in clay-limestone: BeauvaisBrunetières, and Bézards. Alcoholic fermentation takes place in old wooden tronconic vats, with both punch-downs and pump-overs performed over the 20-day maceration, and it spends a year in very old foudres before bottling. More punchily mineral-driven than the “Vieilles Vignes” above and with a tighter-grained texture, it displays effortless equilibrium and gorgeously rendered dark-red and black fruits on an acid-driven frame. We are pleased to be able two library vintages to accompany the current-release 2016: the brooding, saline, still-very-youthful 2009, and the umami-tinged, architecturally structured 2005—a wine with decades ahead of it still.
