- Burgundy,Cote de Nuits
- Pinot Noir
Light amber red core with a translucent rim. Aromatics of smoky grilled meat, camp fire, crunchy roasted red berry fruits, wild floral and forest floor. Very Chambollish palate, soft, caressing and alluring displaying medium bodied flavors of pure elegant red currant fruits, orange marmalade, forest floor, and some stony minerals. Supple tannins with a very good length and a delightful finish.
