The most beautiful representative of the Chalon coast
Fabrice Masse, who took over the family estate in Barizey, in the Saône-et-Loire region, has teamed up with his uncle Roland, a former manager and oenologist at the Hospices de Beaune, to develop a beautiful range of wines from the Chalon coast. From a rich colored purple color with ruby reflections, this wine has a very subtle nose that opens on a basket of small red and black fruits composed mainly of currants and wild strawberries. On the palate, we find all the crunch of Pinot Noir with a tannic frame present but well melted. It is a wine of a beautiful balance with a long finish that tends on the acidity while keeping a beautiful fruitiness.
Supple and generous, it will delight your taste buds now but for patients, with the aging, it will be enriched with notes of spices and undergrowth and gain finesse.
Wine with enough volume and flesh to accompany a rabbit in gibelotte or a salmis of guinea fowl .
