CÔTE DE BEAUNE

Maranges Premier Cru “Le Clos des Loyères” 2018

TASTING

Behind its dark color, this Pinot Noir hides aromas of black fruit, red flowers and sweet spices. The same flavors burst in the mouth, highlighting the personality of this elegant and perfectly balanced wine. The tannins are silky, while the oak is well integrated. The finish, long and full, gives an unusual airiness for this vintage.
