- The 4.81-hectare plot of Grands Esprits has large, round, rocky, limestone-rich soils planted between 1970 and 1980. It produces a straight Pinot Noir with firm tannins and potential for long aging. Occupying almost one-quarter of the vineyard’s overall area, the 220 rows of Grands Esprits is the most calcareous area in the Clos Marey-Monge.
- Hand-harvested organic grapes, hand-sorted on a vibrating table. 20% whole-cluster. Placed into stainless steel fermentation vats by gravity flow. Weeks-long maceration, minimal pumping-over and punching-down. Pressing in pneumatic pres. Placed in French oak barrels (25% new) for aging on fine lees for 18 months.
- 4000 bottles made.
- "Earthy and ripe on the nose, with a touch of granite and dark chocolate. Instant complexity with deliciously pert red fruit and a long, persistent finish. Great concentration without being heavy – soulful Pinot." (RH)
