A lovely, vibrant red colour. Lots of dense, black fruit on the nose, with notes of mushrooms and fine, dark chocolate, as well as a lick of new oak. These promising aromas lead to a palate rich in dense and chewy fruit, with firm, gently spicy yet unobtrusive tannins providing a good structure. Balanced acidity, and a hearty rather than elegant texture persist through to the dry, slightly savoury finish. It's a pleasure to find such good drinking at an affordable price from Burgundy.
