Bourgogne Rouge

Grown mostly on the flatlands immediately below more prestigious Burgundy appellations, Bourgogne Rouge exhibits many of the same appealing qualities: a characteristic bouquet of red and dark berries evolving with age toward prune, pepper and forest underbrush, and a good balance of tannins and fruit that makes them fill the mouth and ensures a good longevity. Elegant and refined, they pair well with light and aromatic meat dishes, fish and mild cheeses.
