Domaine Vincent Girardin 1999 Maranges 1er Cru Clos des Loyeres

Quite amber on the edge, clear mid depth red centre. Old nose, dusty red fruits in the background. Lovely gentle mellow palate. All in balance and fine berry and cherry fruits. Good length with ripe pinot there. Opens nicely in the glass.

Maranges, Burgundy, France
