*online prices/offers might differ from prices at Vino Cultura cellar.
Taste characteristics: of a deep red colour, the wines offer aromas of jammy red fruits and gentle spices. On the palate, they prove to be powerful, warm and complex, with fine but noticeable tannins and great persistence due to their minerality.
Serving temperature: 15-16°C; it is often desirable to decant recent vintages to amplify their aromatic expression.
This named lieu-dit is one of the most highly-reputed of the appellation. It is situated near the premier cru parcels of „Les Arvelets” and „La Platière“, at the very top of the hillside slope, hence its name „Les Vignots“ (meaning „vines at the top”).
The domain surface area of vines: 0.301ha.
Number of bottles produced: 1900.
Exposure: due south, altitude 330 m.
Steep slope: 34%.
Type of soil: the parcel is situated on quite a steep slope and a terroir of white marl with a lot of rock and very little surface soil.
