RATINGS

...scents of orange peel and a light ash-like aroma infusing the red fruit...palate is medium-bodied with supple, lithe tannins. This is a sleek and silky smooth Grands Echézeaux with a lovely touch of spice that bursts through on the finish.

TYPE

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
