Fabien Collonge “L’aurore des Cotes” Chiroubles Gamay 2017 - Burgundy, France
The wine is dark in color, with aromas of violets and bramble fruit. Flavors include fresh, tart raspberries. The texture is rather generous, with fine, soft tannins gently caressing the palate like linen sheets. This wine is a bit riper and darker than other wines from Chiroubles but is still very balanced and pleasant.
