Beaune, Burgundy, France
Beaune is the capital of the wine-producing region of Burgundy as well as the most extensive communal AOC appellation in the Côte d'Or. The production of red wines covers an area of 368.74 ha including 281.49 ha of Premiers Crus. Most of the vineyards are located on pronounced slopes. This wine is a blend of grapes from different vineyards: Pernand-Vergelesses, Chorey-les-Beaune and Savigny-les-Beaune.
The grapes are manually harvest and aged in barrles (of which 30% are new oak). This wine is dark garnet in color. It has an intense nose marked by grilled reduction and smoky notes as well as aromas of “gariguette” and wild strawberry. The palate is rich, fleshy, and very fruity. This is a wine with a great ageing potential. Use a decanter if you want to drink it young.
