Beaune 1er Cru
Les Vignes Franches
Bright, medium opaque, ruby with an array of tantalising aromas of red fruits, smoke and spices. Flavours of cooked fruit, oak and liqourice swell magnificently on the palate with medium acidity and balanced tannins. The lasting effect is a suave, full-bodied wine that will get better and better with a little time.
Decanter: 2 Stars
Soil: Clay/chalk soil
Open-vat fermentation followed by 10 to 12 months in oak barrels
