This appellation included 28 Premiers Crus, with the most famous being Les Epenots, Les Rugiens and Les Chanlins.
Deep ruby color with garnet highlights. Good aromatic intensity, with a complex nose of minerality, small black fruits and minty chocolate.
A lively attack, good structure on the palate, full-bodied and lovely concentration. Well-rounded tannins, and beautiful minerality on the finish.
