The first vintage of Cécile’s Murgers! That’s a rare bottle.

Yes and Very Good ! BTW, - Duroché Griotte is very very rare …

That goes without saying.

I tried the 2015 last month [wink.gif]

But at the end of the day, I think Pierre’s Clos de Bèze is better.

Some nice wines there! Nice, concise notes.
Love that Prevost FacSimilie. Wish it were half the price. lol
Good stuff.
