This wine is traditionally considered as having feminine qualities, particularly compared to Pommard wines.
Boasting a ruby robe, both the bouquet and palate of this wine are bursting with red fruits (redcurrant, cherry). A pleasant tangy quality gives rise to soft spice aromas (cinnamon, liquorice) and animal notes with maturity.
