Christian Veyry (famous oenologist who used to work with Michel Rolland) took over this 4 Ha estate in 1987 planted on Clay-Limestone and Clay-Slits soils.
Looking for concentration and power by reducing the yields (30 to 35Hl.ha) and using new Oak barrels, the balance achieved is absolutely stunning.
