    Bourgogne Rouge wines are the still reds produced under the generic Bourgogne appellation.  In the Côte de Beaune and Côte de Nuits sub-regions, this surface area is concentrated mostly on the lower slopes of the Côte d'Or escarpment.  Bourgogne Rouge wines represent an entry to the exciting world of Pinot Noir form Burgundy.  This fresh and delicate wine from 2013 represents the vintage well with soft, sweet red fruit complemented by a crisp and supportive acid line.

    Tasting Notes

    The wine colour is light to medium in intensity and the hue is garnet. Aromas are subtle and primarily of tart cherry, red currants and cured meat with suggestions of earth, anise and cacao that scent the bouquet.

    Just as the weight of the palate reflects the wine colour, so the flavours recall the bouquet. The palate has both soft and firm textural components expected in young Burgundy from this crafted combination of spiced red fruits, youthful tannins and bright acidity. The wine is typically Burgundy in its expression of savoury, sweet and spice notes in a mid-weight structure.
