Super Burgundy bargain
Notes of spice and red fruits, especially raspberry, dominate in this wine, which is a true expression of the region. It is best drunk young, but has the potential to age. It has a medium-body and excellent length.
Food Pairing: Enjoy with slow-cooked beef blade
Cellaring: Great now till 2025
"Pinot Noir from the Côte de Nuits at a (relatively) keen price, full of raspberryish fruit with a touch of spice." Tom Doorley, Irish Daily Mail, 14th November 2021
"This is a stylish yet typically sturdy and robust, medium-bodied red Burgundy from Marsannay. The nose has intense soft red and black fruit aromas, especially raspberries, with added spicy notes. The palate is surprisingly silky, distinctly gamey, with well-integrated tannins and excellent length. Super Burgundy bargain. Enjoy with slow-cooked beef blade." Matthew Nugent, The Sun, 7th November, 2021
