Bright medium red. Pure but reticent aromas of red berries, smoke, game and earth. At once firmer and sweeter in the mouth than the Marsannay, with the intense red berry flavors displaying lively acidity. Here the tannins come across as a bit less sharp than those of the Marsannay owing to the wine's greater mid-palate sweetness. A firm, persistent, honest village wine in the making.
