2015-super aromatic, ripe red fruits but nicely balanced and asking to finish the bottle.

Unfocused at first but came together nicely. A littler rough around the edges but not in an unpleasant way

Can enjoy this now or even in a few years. Firm but velvet tannins. Loads of dark fruit.

Brambly red fruit, quite young, savory. Nice and true.

I just finished reading "Shadows in the Vineyard" about the 2010 attempt to poison the DRC, and since I can't afford Villaine's flagship wines, I figured this would be the next best thing. Not disappointed at all. While I tend to dislike young red Burgundy, this is already crazy approachable. Much riper than I'm used to. Not necessarily new-world, but closer to The fruit of Beaujolais, or maybe Rhone. Earthy and complex with a bright red cherry. Vibrant. Elegant. Lovely.

Good wine, but better value to be had for the price.
