A blend from a number of different parcels in the Hautes Côtes de Nuits, this is a light and fruity wine. It has that cool character typical of the fresh vineyards behind the Côtes de Nuits, giving red currants and acidity along with dry tannins. It should age until 2016 to bring the freshness into the line with the fruit.
