  • French Red Burgundy Wine, Domaine Xavier Durand 2012 Nuits-Saint-Georges Les Charmois

    Domaine Xavier Durand
    2012 Nuits-Saint-Georges
    Les Charmois

    $39

    Grown in light and sandy soil, Les Charmois is a softer and more supple Pinot Noir than most Nuits-Saint-Georges. It also stands in stark contrast to the harsher, clay-grown, Aloxe-Cortons from Domaine Durand. Ready to drink now!

    • Initially somewhat closed on the nose, but swirl the glass and you’ll find resiny scents with hints of citrus, mineral, a whiff of new leather, and, eventually, some fruit as well — suggestive of dark cherries. Palate offers veiled fruit overlaid with light tannins. Fairly soft and round at the present, but with increasing acidity on the finish. A light, delicate, quiet wine that will need time to come out of its shell.

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

    Les Charmois

    $39

    Grown in light and sandy soil, Les Charmois is a softer and more supple Pinot Noir than most Nuits-Saint-Georges. It also stands in stark contrast to the harsher, clay-grown, Aloxe-Cortons from Domaine Durand. Ready to drink now!

    • The nose on this pretty, red-violet Pinot Noir is subdued—making the wine seem like a rose whose petals have not yet opened. Offers spicy black cherry on the palate, with good structure and plenty of acidity. If you open this wine in the next year or two (2015–2016), be sure to decant it and/or pair it with rich food.

      Food pairing: Porcetta
