  • Tasting Notes

    • Antique gold color. Powerful nose with iron notes, almost hematic, and aromas of roasted hazelnuts, characteristic of the Verzenay terroir. Lively, full, and intense on the attack. Red berries, cooking spices, and hazelnuts on the palate, along with blood-like notes, almost animal, typical of this historic terroir of the Northern Montagne de Reims.
