Region : Cote de Nuits, Burgundy, France
Varietal : 100% Pinot Noir
Tasting Notes : Deep garnet colour, bright like a gemstone. The aromas are as intense, but elegant. They are reminiscent of cherry jelly with hints of wood and balsam, or cedar. With age, the aromas take on gamey touches. On the palate, the wine displays flesh as well as structure and a velvety texture. Very flavorful aftertaste, evoking fruit syrups and spice infusions.
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 25 years.
