Region : Cote de Beaune, Burgundy, France
Varietal : 100% Pinot Noir
Tasting Notes : A great wine, one of the most representative of Beaune, the capital of Burgundy. Intense and bright red colour. The nose displays aromas of red currant with some spicy notes. With age and in some vintages, the aromas become even more marked by spicy and smoky touches, such as tobacco. On the palate, the tannins are refined and create a seductive harmony. In the aftertaste there is a marked flavour of "crème de cassis" and delicate touches of wood.
Vintage : The 2016 crop was low in quantity but its quality provides a nice surprise. The mature grapes gave deep ruby-coloured wines displaying notes of black fruit mingled with hints of violet and spices. The palate is round and generous. The wines are typical of their terroir.
Best enjoyed at 16°C. Drink now or cellar up to 20 years.
