Clos Marey-Monge Grands Esprits 2017

  • Known to bring body and structure to our Clos Marey-Monge Monopole blend, our Grands Esprits is a high-quality Pinot Noir enjoyable on its own. With an intense ruby color and exuberant nose of red fruits, sandalwood and sweet spices such as cinnamon and cloves, it is a full-bodied and tannic red wine. Its long finale displays notes of minerality, bringing an elegant touch to this robust cuvée.
