Character and style The brilliant colour is of a beautiful intensity. One guesses on the nose, a great depth and a superb smoothness. The mouth is surprising at the same time by its distinction, its subtlety and its elegant volume.
The much ripped fruit (kirsch and plum) and its fine animal nuances are emphasised by some elegant tannins announcing a superb potential of ageing. The wine is velvety and charming; it is all the complexity of the pinot-noir which is expressed over the soil and the vintage.
Ageing and service To drink young or to keep 5-8 ans. Temperature of service: 15-16°C

This fine and elegant wine offers already a combination of varied dishes. All white meats or red meats (Lamb!) will successfully marry with this superb bottle. To avoid some too spiced dishes.
