From the largest and most famous of the Beaune Premier Crus, this wine is classically soft and generous. Of course it has tannins although these are already beautifully cushioned by the ripe red-cherry and blackberry fruits. With spice and smokiness from the wood aging, this is a complete, delicious wine. Drink from 2022.
