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.
Pork chops with strong gravy, wild boar stew, strong cheese.
Origins of the name: from old latin murgerius : artificial rock pile created by man on those hard-to-work vineyards, where rocks had to be removed from the soil.
The soils: deep, gravelly brown limestone soils and fine fraction silty clay limestone.
