Pinot noir often unveils fresh aromas of black currant, red berries and some notes of leather. It is rarely tannic on the palate, but can still be quite dense. Attractive ruby colour with discreet garnet tints. Shiny and limpid. A very fruity and pleasant nose exhaling red berry aromas (strawberry, raspberry), with some notes of vanilla. Good ripeness. Frank attack, filling the palate and offering well-balanced matter. Fat on the palate with elegant tannins. This wine is fresh and pleasant on the finish, with fruity and slightly toasted aromas.
It goes perfectly well with steak, with roasted meat, quiche and pasta. It can be served throughout an entire meal.
