Character and style Classical red ruby colour with some brown nuances. The nose shows some animal and ground nuances together with a concentrated fruit. The mouth and the palate are full of a wine with a great character: Original wine of terroir there is a mixed development of red and ripped fruits, some goods but blended tannins and the spices always given by the soil of the Corton hill. After 5/6 years the wine begin to be adult with its firsts nuances of wild games, mushroom and humid ground. A classic of the Burgundy pinot-noir !

This wine of good potential will be a great accompaniment for all meats particularly the games after 7/8 years. All the marinated, stuffed or wine sauces styles are welcomed (not too much spicy). The strong cheeses too.
