(2023) An unoaked blend of Pinot Noir 60%, Gamay 35% and Côt 5%, this comes from clay and limestone soils. Crimson red, with a delicate, translucent rim. The nose is refined and pretty. The absence of oak allows soft berry and lightly herbal smoky notes to show through, leading on to a palate which burst with surprising fruit ripeness and sweetness. There is nice weight, the purity of fruit persisting to a finish that stays taut with crispness to both tannins and acidity.
