Red Burgundy wine is principally accounted for by the three departments of Yonne, Côte d'Or and Saône-et-Loire. It is the northern wine region producing high end reds. Pinot noir is the grape on which all the red Burgundy appellations are based, from the most modest to the most prestigious. For this Pinot Noir 2010, the grapes are coming from the Côte de Beaune.
Unoaked. Light, bright pinky red. Fresh sour-cherry nose. Attractively sweet fruit but with well-judged tannin foundation.
Nose is a bit corky. Young bright crimson cherry colour witty a garnet rim. Reasonable viscosity. Nose: mulberry, cassis, slight alcoholic pinch. Fruity nose, hints of vanilla tones suggesting oak. Cranberry, rasberry. Flavour follows through. Light body, high acid but is well balanced with the slight chewy tannins. Well structured, would age 5-7 years well. Herbaceous. Would pair nicely with tomato based, vegetarian. Gentle game like rabbit, or duck, goose. Long back end.
