The village of Talus-Saint-Prix is composed of 39 hectares of vineyards planted on south-facing slopes some distance away from the riverbed. It is known for remarkable minerality, attributed to the characteristic flint in the soils. Also of note, the village is especially susceptible to frost, favoring Pinot Meunier vines which have proven more resilient and able to dodge the spring hazards.
From a single plot - “Le Grand Morceau” - of 55 year old vines on clay/limestone soil with small flints. This inaugural bottling is from the 2015 vintage.
