Our Bourgogne Côtes d’Auxerre Cuvée Louis Bersan is produced from our old vines grown on the kimmeridgian limestone slopes. This wine has a tannic structure due to ageing in oak and Red fruit notes give it its lightness and finesse.

 TASTING NOTESThe nose is dominated by the very fresh fruit that gives to the wine an impression of rigidity. Slightly acid dominant.  We guess this wine has a great ageing potential. The aroma, especially gooseberry and heart cherry complemented with a fine chocolaty taste of oak doesn’t dominate.
