Mid-slope and predominantly limestone. Lavières comes from the word "lave" which in this case has no volcanic reference, but was the term used in the past to describe the flat limestone tiles used to cover the roofs. In fact, these famous stones are found here in the sub-soil. The vines are more than fifty years-old and are situated in the finest part of the appellation. Fermented with 70% whole cluster.
Beaune 1er Cru Les Lavières, a medium to full-bodied, supple and enveloping wine that’s broad and velvety, with melting tannins and an ample core of succulent fruit. Aromas of sweet berries, peonies, spices and sassafras.
