A powerful wine, the wine is deep purple with a rich red edge. The scent of intense dark cherries pops out of the glass. With some breathing, it develops lots of mature blackberries, forest strawberries, fresh vanilla. The taste is of intense cherries, a classic taste from Gevrey- Chambertin. The wine is balanced with a creamy mineral flavor. At the end, there are hints of fresh English licorice, black plums, five spices and candied violets.
