J. Herbin Rouge Bourgogne is a special ink to me because it only travelled half of the world to reach me. Thanks to my friend, Han, who knows and supports my stationery obsession; hence, she went to Georges & Co. while in Paris so I could live vicariously through her experience.
Very similar to other J. Herbin ink, Rouge Bourgogne’s hue is not intense nor saturated, but that translucent quality allows the shading quality to shine. It also allows one to use both sides of paper without worrying about bleedthrough (on premium paper only).
Another praiseworthy quality of Rouge Bourgogne is its quick drying quality, which would be suitable for righty and lefty.
