Bright ruby red in colour with a touch of pink at the rim. Extremely fine, warm nose of damsons, red cherry, clove, nutmeg and raspberry fruit.
Excellent, soft mouth feel, nicely integrated supple tannins, smooth and full with cherry pie, plum and vanilla notes, all nicely balanced with a subtle acidic structure. Lovely even grip and balance leads into a dry, well rounded and full finish. Very nice indeed.
Hard work amongst the vines, terrific vintage conditions and superb vineyard sites with an average vine age of 45 years. Beautiful ripe fruit so typical in 2005, light barrel treatment and early bottling, all integrate together to produce a wine of real character, purity and ripeness. This is a classic red Burgundy and we really hope that you will enjoy it.
