Bright, lightish colour. Fragrant and just a little earthy. Firm, slightly chewy but it's the lovely red fruit that dominates even though there's density and richness. Very accomplished. (JH)

Medium red, less deep than the Aigrots. Slightly rustic aromas of redcurrant, leather and tobacco. Fat, supple and sweet, offering a seamless, mouthfilling texture and a mineral element in the middle palate to provide lift. Finishes broad and lush, with dusty tannins and lingering cherry flavor.

Not surprisingly, this is completely different with a more deeply pitched and notably earthier aromatic profile to the red and blue pinot fruit that introduces rich, full and complex flavors that possess really lovely depth and excellent length. This is a powerful Beaune with impressive intensity.
