"Great breed. Beautiful dark garnet colour. Intense and elegant aromas, with notes of peony, tea rose and damson plum, often with nuances of liquorice. On the palate, beautiful structure, velvety texture ("gras") and majesty. The aftertaste is long, refined and appetizing in a subdued way. The Cru of Beaujolais that is the closest in style to the Burgundies of the Côte d'Or."
