The classic ruby colour of Pinot Noir with brilliant hue. Fruity nose of wild red fruit, and orange peel and marshmallow when young. On palate this wine is among the most elegant thanks to its fleshiness. Silky, integrated tannins. Long aromatic finish. Regional appellation wine that leaves several Gevrey-Chambertins behind.
