Winemaker's Notes

Deep ruby color; pleasant aromas of fruit (cherries, currants, raspberries) and wood. Ripe, mouth-coating tannins, due in part to aging in oak barrels, in part to the maturity of the grapes.

This Bourgogne is so well-balanced it can be enjoyed at present, but it could also be cellared for several years. Serve with red meats, pork and creamy cheeses.

"Deep, surprisingly complex aromas of black cherry, loamy earth and pencil. Vibrant flavors of raspberry, citrus and licorice. Warm, spicy finish."
