Medium red. Aromas of plum and licorice are a bit deeper-pitched and less precise than Confuron's premier crus from Gevrey-Chambertin. Creamy, dry and classic in the mouth, showing excellent ripeness and breadth. Tightens up on the finish, showing a rather clenched mineral character and serious, youthfully dry tannins.
