A blend of two-thirds Clos du Roi and one-third Grèves, which are normally bottled separately but forced to cohabit here because of the frost, the 2016 Beaune 1er Cru has a very pure bouquet with red cherries, raspberry preserve and orange blossom aromas, underneath which lies tangible mineralité. The new oak here (30%) is well integrated. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, darker fruit than the Savigny-lès-Beaune with more wood tannins toward the finish at the moment. Give this 2 or 3 years to fully integrated once in bottle.

Graphite and light vegetal aromas lead off, followed by black cherry, tar and spice accents in this brooding young Burgundy, which is firm now but should come around soon. Best from 2021 through 2032. 240 cases made, 25 cases imported.

(made from the small amount of fruit that was not destroyed by frost in the estate's one hectare of Beaune Clos du Roi and half-hectare of Greves): Good dark red. Inviting perfume of black cherry, licorice and violet. Supple, juicy wine with a surprisingly round texture to its flavors of cherry, spices, menthol and flowers. There's nothing hard about this wine, which Nathalie Tollot said does not include any fruit from the second set of buds. Finishes with pliant tannins.
