2016 Beaune 1er Cru Les Grèves

The Grèves 1er cru is one of the largest of the Cote de Beane and also one of the most well known for it’s quality . The soil offers a complex and yet sensuel wine .The wine has an intense ruby red colour and a nose of red fruit with cherries and blackberry aromas. The palate will develop very round tannins , this wine can be drunk but will easily have another 10 years ahead of itself .
