Region: Cote de Nuits, Burgundy, France
Varietal: 100% Pinot Noir
Tasting Notes: A beautiful, intense ruby-red colour. Powerful but refined aromas. When the wine is young, the aromas are reminiscent of black cherry and dark chocolate. With age, they evolve towards notes of undergrowth, truffle and liquorice. After 15 years or so, the aromas of candied fruit remain but are mingled with nuances of leather and musk. Tannins provide a good structure, perfectly balanced by the velvety texture of the wine. The long aftertaste brings back the aromas of cherry and liquorice, a kaleidoscope of sensations.
Vintage : The wines display bright red shades with a nice evolution over a delicate tannic structure. They are elegant without too much strength.
Best enjoyed at 16 to 18°C. Drink now or cellar up to 40 years.
