Mid cherry red. Scented with red fruit and a light dusting of sweet oak spice. Deep, finely textured and just a little chewy. Firm, dry and long. Needs time to shed its rather stern appearance.
Bright red-ruby. Lovely perfumed aromas of rose petal, minerals and espresso. Boasts superb definition and energy in the mouth, accentuated by a high level of CO2. Youthfully backward and very long, showing no edges. This is always the Faiveley grand cru picked with the lowest potential alcohol, noted technical manager Jerôme Flous. Quite uncompromising in the early going.
