Tasting Notes

Ruby red colour with brilliant highlights. Attractive nose of Burlat cherries, with hints of white pepper and graphite. A structured, fruity attack on the palate, with great freshness. A well-balanced wine, still in its youth, to be drunk with roast meats (tasted in 2023).

Attractive, deep colour with purplish tints. Intense, concentrated nose of blackcurrant buds and juicy black fruit. Fresh, concentrated and fruity on the palate, underpinned by very fine tannins and delicate oak. Wait a little longer. (Tasted in 2022)

Brilliant ruby colour with purple highlights. Engaging nose of red fruit, with hints of vanilla and graphite. A wine in its prime, still a little spirited but with great potential. Will benefit from a few years in the cellar before tasting (tasted in 2021)

Young ruby colour. Very Burgundian on the nose, with hints of morello cherry, peony and autumnal earth. Supple and tender on the palate, with silky tannins wrapped in a long-lasting freshness. Luscious fruit. Pure style (tasted in 2019)

Robe d'aspect jeune, rubis. Nez très bourguignon, qui pinote par ses notes de cerise griotte, de pivoine, de terre automnale. Bouche souple, tendre, matière soyeuse, tanins dentelés enveloppés par une fraîcheur allongée. Fruit gourmand. Style épuré. (dégusté en 2019)
