This cuvée was created to honor Melanie and Benoit’s great-great-great-grandfather who broke away from the house system, essentially kick starting the grower movement way back in 1928, decades before his peers. Louis planted this lieu-dit (Les Crayons) to selection massale in 1946. Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are used in equal measure, fermenting in barrel for six months before being bottles. After more than fifteen years on lees the wine is disgorged and released without dosage.
Pinot Noir 50%, Chardonnay 50%
