A medium to pale red with a classy fragrant bouquet, showing the restraint of a fine wine rather than vulgar immediacy. The real class appears on the palate, with lifted red fruit notes, some orange zest, a great sense of purity and terrific persistence. Definitely a food wine.
Jasper Morris MW, Burgundy Director The early growing season in 2011 was beneficial to ripening the stems, so Nicolas and David Rossignol opted to use more this year, as they also did in 2009. The wines below were made with 25% stems in general and up to 50% for the Grand Crus. This will have influenced the structure of the wines, but it does not show in the fruit profile. The Rossignols continue to develop their style towards finesse, especially in the finish of their wines and these show very good result this year.
