This is a great value Burgundian Pinot Noir, made from a blend of grapes from two areas – 35% from above Saint-Aubin, the balance from near the little-known First Growth called Les Maranges, to the south of Santenay. The vines are really fine Pinots, producing small berries with thick skins – and half the plantings are old vines. Colour is very deep, rich purple, the nose being pure and fresh. Palate shows good body, rich fruit, zestful aftertaste, balanced finish (outstanding value, for drinking 2021-2023+).
