A rare assemblage of 11 Premier and Grand Crus selected in 2012. The cuvée Esprit is aged for a minimum of seven years in the heart of their century-old limestone cellars. 

Aromatics are layered with butter, hazelnut, cardamom, lime, and lemon verbena.  As it opens, notes of apricot, plum, and biscuit. The palate is fresh and fruity with lots of acidity finishing with chalky minerality.
