A fresh red Burgundy made from grapes grown on the Côte de Nuits.
While only carrying the generic Bourgogne appellation it's really a bit of a step up being made from grapes grown in the small "Champ Franc" lieu-dit near Gevrey-Chambertain. Due to the tricky 2013 harvest less than 5,000 bottles were made however, while quantity might have been affected the quality certainly has not. Owners Florence and Simon put great emphasis on respecting the environment and the vines with all grapes picked by hand and then sorted, again by hand, in the winery. Aged in oak barrels for over a year the result is an easy to drink, fruity wine, with a seductive crispness and mild, fine tannins. It has lots of small, elegant red berry fruit flavours and is now showing some pleasing touches of development.
A well developed vintage that's just at the perfect age for immediate drinking.
