A lovely Bourgogne with a silky texture, well-structured matter, and a good balance between acidity and tannins. Aromas of black cherry with notes of Sarawak pepper, and smooth oriental spices.
Red Burgundy is the wine of nobility, of kings and queens and legendary dukes and duchesses of the ancient Duchy of Burgundy.
The grape, Pinot Noir, is fickle and difficult to grow, performing to its full potential only in moderately cool, windswept vineyards marked by poor soils, traits endemic to the hallowed vineyards of Burgundy.
Legend even has it that the greatest Pinot Noirs would be served to nobles on their deathbed in an attempt to revive them.
