    $34

    A wonderful example of a classic Burgundy Pinot Noir. Combine with other Beaune premiers crus from Domaine Besancenot for an instant introduction to the subtleties of French terroirs and vintages.

    • Good fruit intensity on an evolving nose. Hints of truffles, with savory and gamey notes. Iron and wet earth scents are nicely complemented by fleshy cherry and red raspberry aromas. Good acidity. Concentrated, clean. Intense red fruit flavors with grippy tannins lead into a moderately long, fruity finish. Lively and bright with very attractive floral elements. Drinking well now.

  • French Red Burgundy Wine, Domaine Besancenot 2011 Beaune Premier Cru Clos du Roi

    Domaine Besancenot
    2011 Beaune Premier Cru
    Clos du Roi

    $34

    A wonderful example of a classic Burgundy Pinot Noir. Combine with other Beaune premiers crus from Domaine Besancenot for an instant introduction to the subtleties of French terroirs and vintages.

    • A distinctive and quite expressive nose for such a young wine—suggestive of orange water, sandalwood, roses, and earth with a little oak and woody spice in the background. Will need time to open up, but approachable even now, offering subtle hints of cherries, strawberries, and something earthy on the palate, these flavors lingering on an extended finish marked by fruity sweetness jockeying with delicate tannins. Understated, but likely to repay cellaring.

      Food pairing: Pigeon, game hen, duck, other game or fowl, lamb

    • Rich in aromas of fennel, thyme, and strawberries with plenty of grip on the palate that lasts through to the finish. Opulent fruit will be the star of the show in the years to come, with spice a supporting player.

      Food pairing: Pork chops

  • French Red Burgundy Wine, Domaine Besancenot 2010 Beaune Premier Cru Cent Vignes

    Domaine Besancenot

    Cent Vignes

    $34

    A wonderful example of a classic Burgundy Pinot Noir. Combine with other Beaune premiers crus from Domaine Besancenot for an instant introduction to the subtleties of French terroirs and vintages.

    • Rustic yet silky Pinot Noir. Key players on the nose are wild berries, eucalyptus, and dried leaves. Ripe raspberry and currants dominate the palate, leading into a robust finish. Likely to be long-lived, improving through around 2020.

      Food pairing: Roasted lamb

  • French Red Burgundy Wine, Domaine Besancenot 2011 Beaune Premier Cru Cent Vignes

    Domaine Besancenot
    2011 Beaune Premier Cru
    Cent Vignes

    $34

    A wonderful example of a classic Burgundy Pinot Noir. Combine with other Beaune premiers crus from Domaine Besancenot for an instant introduction to the subtleties of French terroirs and vintages.

    • An evolving nose offers moderately intense aromas of sweet spice (nutmeg, cloves), and cedar with subtle/fleeting truffle notes. Concentrated cherry aromas become increasingly evident with a little time, along with red licorice, black pepper, and floral aromas enveloped by woodsy and oak notes. Tart, high-toned red fruit flavors on the palate. Intense fruit, good acidity and grippy, fine-grained tannins. The long, fruity finish has an interesting confected cherry note. Youthful. A wine to try again in 2016–2017.

      Food pairing: Heavy fish (salmon) in tomato sauce

  • French Red Burgundy Wine, Domaine Besancenot 2010 Beaune Premier Cru Clos du Roi

    Domaine Besancenot
    2010 Beaune Premier Cru
    Clos du Roi

    $34

    A wonderful example of a classic Burgundy Pinot Noir. Combine with other Beaune premiers crus from Domaine Besancenot for an instant introduction to the subtleties of French terroirs and vintages.

    • Red fruit, earth, and mushroom notes play on the nose, along with heavier aromas suggestive of iron and raw meat. Medium body with angular tannins and bright strawberry and other red fruit flavors. High floral notes in the background. Silky, almost chewy texture, with great fruit intensity, grippy tannins, and good, balancing acidity. Seems rich on the finish, but will need more time to mature.

      Food pairing: spicy ham and other charcuterie; sausage dishes

  • French Red Burgundy Wine, Domaine Besancenot 2010 Beaune Premier Cru Theurons

    Domaine Besancenot
    2010 Beaune Premier Cru
    Theurons

    $34

    A wonderful example of a classic Burgundy Pinot Noir. Combine with other Beaune premiers crus from Domaine Besancenot for an instant introduction to the subtleties of French terroirs and vintages.

    • Burgundian barnyard funkiness, truffles, dark fruit, and wet earth define the nose. A subtle floral suggestion is enveloped by woodsy, earthy flavors, pepper and other spicy notes, and concentrated cherry and raspberry on the palate. Somewhat angular tannins. Medium body. Moderate length. A hearty, old-style red capable of standing up to tomato sauce.

      Food pairing: Pasta bolognese

  • French Red Burgundy Wine, Domaine Besancenot 1994 Beaune Premier Cru Theurons

    Domaine Besancenot
    1994 Beaune Premier Cru
    Theurons

    $39

    Aged for 21 years in the Besancenots’ cellar, this venerable Pinot Noir exudes complex aromas and a rich, round and vibrant palate. A rare opportunity to savor a great Burgundy at its peak of maturity.

    • Rose petals, citrus, meat, leather, and earth form a complex, evolving nose. Later suggestions of chalk, cinnamon, cherries, and, eventually, stewed fruit with a hint of celery. Round and surprisingly rich palate, but with delicate, leathery tannins on an extended finish. Puts me in mind of an old-school style Manhattan — rye, bitters, vermouth, and a real candied Marasca cherry. Delicious and an excellent value.

      Food pairing: Duck; roasted chicken dishes; rabbit or other game; mushroom or lentil dishes

  • French Red Burgundy Wine, Domaine Besancenot 1998 Beaune Premier Cru Theurons

    Domaine Besancenot
    1998 Beaune Premier Cru
    Theurons

    $39

    Grown on a vineyard right in the middle of Beaune, and aged for 15 years in the winemaker’s cellar, this Pinot Noir is lighter-bodied than the ’98 Greves, and a little sharper than the ’98 Clos du Roi. A touch of acidity means if you’re serving up a fattier or greasier meat, this is the Beaune you want!

    • Rich nose of forest, leather, blueberries, and cinnamon. Complex and spicy. Up-front black cherry fruit on the palate is followed by a lighter mid-palate with prominent but subtle tannins suggestive of fine black tea. Delicate tannins linger briefly on the finish.

      Food pairing: Duck; roasted chicken; rabbit, venison, or other game; mushroom or lentil dishes

  • French Red Burgundy Wine, Domaine Besancenot 1998 Beaune Premier Cru Clos du Roi

    Domaine Besancenot
    1998 Beaune Premier Cru
    Clos du Roi

    $39

    Made from Pinot Noir grown on the northern side of Beaune and aged for 15 years in the Besancenot cellar. A softer, more subtle and bready taste than the 1997 Bressandes or the 1998 Greves, with less acidity than the 1998 Theurons. We’ve nicknamed it our “Oh-Wow-That’s-Good” wine!

    • More fruit than funk, which was unexpected for a wine of its age. Great baking spices, cherry and red fruit. There’s also a nice hint of licorice. Given the fruit, this would be a good wine to try side by side with a more current vintage of Burgundy, or put away for a few years.

      Food pairing: Chocolate souffle
