Goutte d'Or

A small parcel, barely 0.40 ha, replanted in 1991. The soil is heavy clay on a subsoil of stony limestone. It faces due east and is situated on a steep slope level with the southern village exit.

Yields are regular and require careful monitoring as they are producing highly powerful wines, but inconsistent and with very ripe aromas and an almost aggressive minerality when young.

Less finesse to be found than in other Premiers Crus but still a wine to keep for a long time.
