A product of the Champs-Traversins, a Vineyard also known as “Le Petit Cîteaux” by a select few, this wine is an intence concentration of fruit evoking mature aromas. In spite of its seductive nature, give it time to show its full splendour (6 to 10 years).
Serve with red meats, game and cheese.
BURGHOUND - Here the wood treatment is notably more discreet if not completely imperceptible as it allows the spice mélange of red and black pinot fruit, plum, earth and sandalwood hints to be easily appreciated. There is fine volume and density to the velvety, mouth coating and seductively textured flavors that possess so much dry extract on the balanced finish that this could easily be enjoyed now though note well that there is plenty of development potential. This is really quite good. Allen Meadows - burghound.com - Apr 2014
"comes from 80-year-old vines and it is being raised in 80% new oak. It has a delightful, feminine bouquet with hints of white chocolate infusing the red berry fruit profile. It is a playful, quite joyful nose. The palate is well-balanced with fine tannins and a mixture of red and black fruit on the entry. It gathers weight towards the middle and then just steps off the gas towards the linear finish. It maintains fine balanced and there is an attractive tobacco note on the long aftertaste."
