From a highly acclaimed property on the Cote Chalonnaise in Burgundy this is a delicious example of the breed. Of the 2015 vintage, when a hot, dry midsummer was followed by a cool, damp August leading to the production of perfectly concentrated Pinot Noir berries with thick skins, intense flavour and soft tannins, this wine boasts a dark garnet red hue and aromas full of woody notes and kirsch. On the palate it is full and rich, with flavours of red cherry and redcurrant with mouth-watering freshness and supple tannins on the finish. Though drinking well now, it will reward some time in the cellar.
