Region : Cote de Nuits, Burgundy, France
Varietal : 100% Pinot Noir
Tasting Notes : Tasting Griotte-Chambertin is always cause for reflexion, the aromas are complex and subtle, with hints of cherry liqueur, preserved cherry, fine leather, nutmeg. When the wine matures, there are hints of truffle and venison. The flavours are also arresting in their own way and the tannins, although present, are never aggressive or coarse. Long and persistent on the palate, with a glorious aftertaste.
Vintage : The wines offer a good breadth. The tannic structure is not too present. In Côte de Nuits they display nice intensity and maturity. Their evolution is slower than in Côte de Beaune.
Best enjoyed at 16 to 18°C. Drink now or cellar up to 30 years.
