Initially smooth and sophisticated, this wine then reveals a dark core of tannins. It is rich, structured, full of juicy red fruit as well as a fine line of acidity. The vineyard is south of the city of Nuits-St.-Georges. Definitely ageworthy, the wine has density, concentration and a powerful future. Drink from 2023.
