Notes from North Berkeley Imports:
"Estate vines sit on the upper slope of this grand cru vineyard, near its border with grand cru Clos Saint-Denis. Nearly one-third of estate vines were planted in the 1920s.
Raphet wines are a Burgundy lover’s Burgundy. While the wine’s color in the glass is a delicate ruby, aromas and flavors surprise with their forceful intensity. This contrast often catches the uninitiated off guard, yet it is part of the seduction of these limited and highly sought-after wines. Raphet Burgundy is handmade from field to bottle, with a rhythm and
method that hasn’t changed in more than four generations. Pinot Noir vines at the estate are on average very old, with many surpassing 100 years."
