Ben takes a domaine philosophy, focused on establishing and maintaining contracts with growers who work for top quality vines and fruit rather than seeking prestigious appellations. Ben and his team carefully guide the vineyard work, for the most part carried out by the owners. Vines are plowed and are at least lutte raisonnée, while many are organic or biodynamic.
This village cuvée has a crisp, blackberry and redcurrant-scented bouquet with a touch of black tea. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent tannin, fine acidity and poise with good depth on the fleshy finish.
