Good medium red. Aromas of redcurrant, smoke and leather. Suppler and sweeter than the Clos du Dessus des Marconnets; made in a plumper style. But this denser wine also shows more energy and length. Finishes with slightly dusty tannins. A very good showing.

The 2013 Beaune 1er Cru Coucherias has a pretty, more feminine bouquet than the Clos du Dessus des Marconnets, with perfumed raspberry and wild berry scents suffused with cold stone notes. The palate is medium-bodied with fleshy ripe red cherry and cranberry fruit. This has more depth and body than the Clos du Dessus des Marconnets with a lively, sappy finish. Enjoy this over the next two or three years.
