Three parcels, totaling 16 acres from the Hospices de Belleville estate, provide the fruit for this wine. Wood aged and rich, the wine is fruity, packed with generous red-cherry flavors. There are concentration and some dark tannins as well as fine fruitiness and acidity. Drink this wine from 2018. This is Drouhin's second vintage making wine in partnership with the Hospices de Belleville charity.
