Wines of the Côte du Py are very dark and profound, very dense. Aromas are very classic of cherry, kirsh and stone of the fruits. Very mineral, graphite, spices like black and white pepper. Wine can live a long life, more than 25 years old for the best vintages is not a problem! Older gamays of Côte du Py smells like old rose wine, and floral aromas. Young, it is better to drink them at 16/17°C, and older around 18°C. Côte du Py being a quite strong wine, it goes very well with red meat like beef, but also duck and why not game during the fall (Hare, Dear, Wild Pork,…) and good cheses.
