Lucien Muzard Santenay 1er Cru Clos Faubard / 2018 / 375mL
North of the Village, Clos Faubard sits up high, where the slope climbs into scrubland.
The soil here, has the same Bajocian marl limestone that is found in the Côte de Nuits and not found elsewhere in the Côte de Beaune, giving Faubard's wine a distinct spicy minerality.
The domaine, one of only three owners of this vineyard, has 1.47 hectares here and makes roughly 750 cases each year.
40% whole bunch followed by 12 months elevage in 30% new barriques.
Vibrant red fruit leads to a densely packed, mineral inflected palate of great purity and terrific length.
