Aged on the lees in a combination of barrel (300L, no new wood) and tank then bottled unfiltered in July.
First crafted in the 2010 vintage, Gerard's old vine parcel in La Cote (referred to by the Cotat brothers as La Grande Cote) produces a wine of incredible precision, power and lazer sharp minerality...Boulay's signature style!
