1er Cru Mitans

In the old French language, "Mitans" means the middle, therefore a vineyard located in the middle of the slope.

A dream vintage which offers generous volumes and superb quality. Water is a major player during the winter which allows the vines to build up their reserves before a particularly hot and dry summer. Favored by a mild spring, flowering took place perfectly with beautiful and numerous clusters. No major climatic incident hampers the growing cycle. The harvest, which was in impeccable health, took place from August 27 to September 15.


It is a small terroir with clayey limestone soil, drained because of gravel in depth. Famous as one of the best climats from the village, "Mitans produces fleshy and racy wines, worth keeping. Our supplying comes from two plots of which one of them is more than hundred years old.
