Daniel and his wife Monique (recently officially retired), and now their son Philippe, have run this mid-sized estate extremely well and their wines provide a bridge between tradition and modernity. Unusually, with the core wines of the range, two vintages are sold concurrently, which makes for an interesting tasting comparison. Their Chardonnays and Trousseau wines are aged in large foudres, the best being aged for as many as three or four years, proving that foudres can provide great depth and character to the wines without the oakiness. The Vins Jaunes are always excellent here too. Allow plenty of time for tasting.
