Tasting

Cuvée Guayrd de Changey comes from Les Murgers Premier Cru. The wines displays a deep, dark colour. In its youth it develops fruity, floral and spicy aromas and a soft mouthfeel underpinned by balsamic notes, fresh leather and smoke. Its firm structure indicates exceptional potential for bottle age. It offers taut tannins and a fleshy attack that makes it approachable in its youth.

History
