Champagne gold colour with slightly copper tints. Energetic and dazzling effervescence. A ravishing
bouquet: complex, generous and deep, dominated by red fruits (raspberry) and orchard fruits
(nectarines, golden plums), a certain smokiness (hazelnuts and toasted almonds) and a hint of sunwarmed
pebbles. The immediate impression is velvety, creamy and elegant on the palate with a mineral
freshness and vertical structure very typical of Pinots noirs from Verzenay. A deep, robust and complex
juice where the fruits sun-drenched richness is counterbalanced by the salty freshness of the terroir.
The ageing potential for this fabulous year 2009 is very high.
