An attractively layered nose features notes of dark currant with plenty of earth and sauvage nuances adding breadth. There is good volume to the imposingly concentrated and textured middle weight flavors that possess excellent persistent on the lingering, austere and balanced finish where a touch of the stems used in the vinification is evident. This is old school in style and will best please those who enjoy robust and overtly muscular Gevrey 1ers.
This communal appellation covers the vineyards of Fixin, Brochon, Premeaux, Comblanchien, and Corgoloin. Spread along the length of the Cotes de Nuits the wines of the different communes are, unsurprisingly, varied, reflecting a range of different exposures and nuances of soild type. The vast majority of production is red, with just a smattering of Chardonnay grown. The reds can offer very good value from the better producers.
