Located in the village of Magny-lès-Villers (Hautes-Côtes), situated on the dividing line between the Hautes Côtes de Beaune and Hautes Côtes de Nuits - Domaine Henri Naudin-Ferrand is 22 hectares of vineyards with iconic plots that have been managed by winemaker Claire Naudin since 1994. 

white Burgundy that pushes a few too many boundaries to be labeled as such, "Le Clou 34" is a blend of Claire's oldest plots, named after one in particular (planted in 1934, naturally) with very low yields, east exposure and shallow top soil over a limestone bedrock. 

baked gala apple, pear, lavender, lime blossom, almond, bright acidity, wonderful minerality, lithe yet creamy on the palate. Delicious now but could also be cellared for another decade. Vegan friendly.
