Wine experts say this Red wine is the epitome of “fruity” Italiana. It`s elegant and medium bodied, with a mouthwatering cleansing effect. The fruit is pure and complex, offering up tight raspberry and cherry flavors, a supple, lightly smoky texture, just a kiss of oak (21% new French). The acidity is well-measured and moderate in length and sweetness. A blend of blocks and clones from this impressive vineyard, this wine offers aromas of jammy berry, black tea, mocha and toasted vanilla. In the mouth there are flavors of sweet red fruit, blueberry and pepper. The length and detail are impressive. Vines just west of Nuits-St.-Georges are the source for this finely concentrated, ripe, Burgundian Syrah. Extremely dry and still a bit herbaceous, it needs 4–5 years to show its full-fruit potential.
