Tasting note by Véronique Boss-Drouhin

"Good structure, recalling the profile of some of the great wines of the Côte d'Or. Deep garnet colour; powerful aromas of cherry and will berries. Fleshy on the palate. A lot of character".

Vintage

2020: A vintage of maturity, freshness and balance The grapes harvested were very ripe, in a very satisfactory state of health. This vintage offers wines with a sustained colour, of a very deep red with bluish tints. The aromatic expression is rather intense this year, on the black fruit register. The tannins are ripe and supple and the wines offer a beautiful substance and density, in particular for the Beaujolais crus. Quantitatively 2020 is a rather average harvest. The wines will offer a lot of indulgence for all lovers of this beautiful Gamay grape.
