"This wine comes from the Les Rachais lieu-dit. The area itself is 0.5 hectares, with 0.4 of those planted in Chardonnay. This wine is always released as a 100% vintage bottling and considered the finest expression produced at the estate. The site was planted by Francis himself in 1964 using exclusively selection massale cuttings. It's also where he conducted his first biodynamic experiment while still at Raymond Boulard, convincing him the entire estate should be converted and eventually leading to the formation of Francis Boulard et Fille when he stopped working with his brother and sister. The soils here are notably sandy, with 2 meters of sand over limestone mother rock." -Louis/Dressner
