Surface: 1 227 hectares

Production in 2018: 66 097 hectolitres / approx. 8 500 000 bottles

Soils: Probably the most complex of all the Crus: half composed of steep slopes of pink granite and half a mixture of clayey scree, “blue stone”, ancient alluvial pebbles and small limestone hillocks.

Attributes: Absolute finesse

Aspect: Deep ruby red

Nose: Aromas of red fruit, plum and mineral notes

Palate: Red fruit with polished tannins

Characteristics: This, the southernmost Cru is also the longest, stretching out from the foot of Mont Brouilly and its aptly named chapel, Notre Dame aux Raisins (Our Lady of the Grapes). Full of fruit (plum, small red berries), with some mineral notes, it is perfectly representative of Gamay, and is best
appreciated in its youth.
