Story

The story
I like to compare this terroir like my Chambolle Musigny of Moulin à vent. Because the facing offers a nice maturity and the diversity of the granite a really nice complexity. It’s a wine need more aging in barrels to make the wine softer and approachable.

Advice

Tasting notes
The wine shows a very nice concentration with some black fruits flavors, irises, wilted roses, spices and ripe fruits. The texture is soft and rich with a long finish. It has an impressive structure, suggeting that it has the capacity to age for many years.
