"Bright ruby-red. The nose conveys a sexy coolness to the aromas of blackberry, violet, white pepper and crushed rock. Then surprisingly supple and creamy in the mouth, but with its sweet blackberry fruit energized by bright acidity and supported by a firm tannic spine. A very suave, long Nuits villages."
