Ripe and soft, this revels in its jammy Pinot Noir character. The dry tannins creep in later, supporting open red fruit flavors topped with black plum skins. The finish is all strawberry jam.
Fixin is at the northern end of the Côte de Nuits, often offering good value reds. This soft, raspberry and tomato juice wine has bright acidity and freshness. The final flavor is sweeter, more jammy.
