Beaune du Chateau Premier Cru 2008

Grape Type : Pinot Noir

This Premier Cru is eye catching with a sparkling, translucent, ruby red color. This Burgundy offers up more than eye appeal: Its fragrant aroma haunts the senses. A bouquet resplendent with the perfume of ripe red fruits, peat, graphite, deft touches of hickory nut, wood smoke and Asian spices tantalizes the olfactory. Layered, penetrating flavors add depth to this harmonious Pinot Noir, as silky, textured flavors work their magic in the mouth. And on the finish, the wine’s pleasantly smooth, spicy exit, replete with just the right touch of oak.

Food Pairing: meat dishes in white sauce, grilled poultry
