Crafted in a time-honoured Burgundian fashion, using small vat fermentation with indigenous yeast. Gentle winemaking follows in order to ensure delicate colour and flavour extraction. The wine is then given 10 months maturation in 25% new French oak barrels. A fabulously enchanting bouquet of aromatic floral tones marries seamlessly with a real pot-pourri of damson, dark cherry and black raspberry fruit. Deep, layered and as caressing as satin on the palate, yet with a spine of telling freshness and ripe, well-etched tannins. Linear and focused with a fine persistent finale. Delicious now, but will keep for five years or more. 750ml.
