"2019 La Marginale is sourced from vines around Chacé and Varrains (so very close to the domaine itself), in particular from the well-known lieu-dit Les Poyeux. The bedrock here is Turonian limestone, with clay-limestone soils above, and the slope is south-facing. The yield is low, typically 25-35 hl/ha, and as with other cuvées the fruit is carefully sorted and then at least part of the harvest is destemmed while the rest is left in whole bunches...Again I am taken by the fresh character in what was a warm vintage, with dark and fragrant fruits especially damsons, peonies, violets and pencil shavings. This leads to a delightfully elegant poise on the palate, a medium-bodied presence but with a firm central core of tannic grip and fresh acidity too. It feels structured, firm, poised and upright, with great restraint running into a long grip of ripe tannins. This has excellent potential." Chris Kissack in The Wine Doctor
