Wine Characteristics :These vineyards from the hillsides of Couchey, in a place known as “En Sampagny” offer a fine, solid, and structured wine. The nose is fruity, primarily notes of red and black fruits like blackberry. The attack on the palate reveals firm but elegant tannins that will encourage ageing this wine for several years. This is a great introduction to the red wines of the Côte de Nuits.
