Wine Characteristics :: As a general rule, this Morey 1er Cru offers hues of intense carmine with violet reflections. The nose is very typical to Pinot Noir, offering primary aromas of red and black fruits, like cherry and blackcurrant. The second nose brings notes of eau-de-vie fruits as well as some floral touches. On the palate, it’s a sophisticated wine, well built and well-defined. The tannins lack neither finesse nor elegance.
