A wine in the same style as Les Amerots, but richer and more intense! Grown way up by Dijon, near the Côte de Nuits, this is a great basic Pinot Noir with excellent value. Some of our customers can’t get enough of it! Available in 2 vintages.

  • Earthy scents combine with up-front fruit and hints of clove and other spices on the nose. There is a musky element to the nose as well, but the wine comes across as clean nevertheless and on the palate similarly combines a certain rustic quality with rather more finesse than Marsannay is generally noted for. Still somewhat closed, with tannins veiling the underlying fruit, but solidly structured, promising good things ahead. Drinkable now but likely to soften considerably and to improve through around 2017–2018.

    Food pairing: Ribs, duck, venison, rabbit, other game
