"From a family estate in the Grand Cru of Bouzy, this has a welcoming bright hue and aroma of raspberries – forward and lifted with lovely tart berry tanginess and rose petal sweetness. The modern, youthful palate (the base vintage is 2017) is similarly inviting and intense, with creamy raspberry richness from 35% reserve wine in the blend."
