France Burgundy Red

Cote de Beaune, Burgundy 75cl

This wine has been a prolific trophy winner, winning some of the most prestigious awards at the International Wine Challenge.
Tried at a tasting 2 weeks ago, it looked a bit closed, but today served in a good glass and alongside a delicious leg of lamb, it was singing.
Floral nose with bright red berry fruits, some meaty characters and a touch of oak and dried herb too.
Quite meaty on the palate with lovely sweet red berry fruit- think strawberry- like a compote, again spice and dried herb with delicate oak.
Very attractive wine, classic Burgundy with its savoury notes, tannins are ripe and this is a go to Burgundy now, give it a good decant. Sure to age well too. really lovely wine.
