This Beaune Premier Cru comes from vines situated halfway up the slopes overlooking Beaune, where the house of Drouhin owns a number of Premier Cru vineyards. A ruby-coloured wine, the 1997 vintage proclaims its youth with intense and delicate aromas of Burgundy fruit such as red and black currants. Age is evident through smoky touches and clove notes which give a satisfying harmony to the nose. The tender tannins which marked this vintage marry well with the wine's acidity and richness to produce a distinguished and balanced impression on the mouth, with a long and subtle finish.
