The colour is rustic and rusty - distinguished and deep to the core.
Sweet strawberry compote on the nose, a touch of leather, forest floor and dark flower petals. Heady and hedonistic.
The palate is wonderful - juicy fruit crushed with fresh herbs & spice. Rich and layered with with all notes and nuances caressing the palate as they should. Then, as with all great Burgundy, it becomes about the sensation, the ephemeral, the feel and memory of it. Brilliant stuff.
