Notes de dégustation
Dark red colour. Nose shows red fresh fruits when young, and will go to wild under growth aromas when ageing. The wine is well balanced .Quite souple, it is at the same time fleshy, with lots of power and richness. Can be a little bit closed when young. But typical of Grands Crus with many aromas at the end of the mouth and a long length.
Matches well with red meats, games, and fine cheeses.
