Wine of deep ruby color with crimson trim around the edge of the glass.
The rich taste, like a symphony, harmoniously interwoven shades of dark red and blue fruits, complemented by floral intonations. The wine finishes delicate long finish with hints of minerals and spices.
The wine has a luxurious fragrance with notes of wild red fruits, flowers, land, minerals and Asian spices.
The wine goes well with game birds with berry or mushroom sauce.

A appellason Marsannay and is known in narrow circles of experts Burgundy, although the well-structured and fairly tannic wines are one of the best ratios of "price-quality" in all of Burgundy, they are able to develop and they should not be too young to drink - it is recommended to wait 4 -8 years. The grapes used in the production of these wines - from old vines 25-70 year olds, for whom during the year carefully looked after, plowed soil and add compost (chemical fertilizers are not used), the crop is harvested by hand and selected only those berries that have reached perfect ripeness . All these actions are performed with one goal - to provide excellent strong, dense, fine wines with good color. Bruno Clair paired with the talented winemaker Philippe Brunet create a long line of high quality wines from the "Savigny-les-Beaune - from south to Marsannay at reasonable prices - from the north."
