Courcel Bourgogne Rouge Pinot Noir Wine
DDC.80.1-2014-75Regular price €38,50
Property of Gilles de Courcel, who owns the best plots of the Pommard appellation. Yves Confuron (Confuron-Cotetidot) is in charge of the technical direction, controlling the yields well and looking for the ideal ripeness of the bunches, for its classic whole bunch vinification (without destemming).
Pinot Noir is almost always the grape of choice in Burgundy. These reds are significantly less fruit-forward than American varietals – in Burgundy it's all about the terroir, which can vary widely within the region. The character of these wines is a result of variations in climate and the differences in soil from along the river upon which the region lines.In the far south of Burgundy, Gamay is used instead of Pinot. Red fruits typically grace the nose and palate.
Burgundian reds collect well and can usually age for many years before drinking.
With respect to food, these reds go well with savory dishes without too much spice. You can even enjoy a light red Burgundy with some fattier fishes. Try to avoid spicier dishes and leafy greens.
