Summary

From just four hectares in the village of Leynes comes this playful wine representing the best value and quality Christophe Cordier has to offer. Playful because it is so expressive of ripe peach, tropical notes, Mediterranean herbs and orange zest. It is dense and fruit forward but still maintains the energy and freshness of the terroir. The finish is texturally satisfying with excellent length, giving a touch of seriousness to this joy-filled wine. Cordier wines never sacrifice quality so this entry level wine punches well above its weight (price point). Using only the best, hand-harvest and sorted, fruit from biodynamically farmed vineyards Christophe releases a wine that will please even the most experienced Burgundy drinker as well as the novice.
