CÔTE DE BEAUNE

Maranges Premier Cru “Le Clos des Loyères” 2017

TASTING

Behind its light ruby color, the wine reveals aromas of wild and black fruits, lined with notes of vanilla, cloves, pepper, and a hint of flowers and almonds. The same flavors appear on the palate, enhancing the character of this well-balanced and elegant red. The tannins are smooth and silky and well integrated. Approachable now, this wine will age beautifully.
