The 2020 Beaune Cent Vignes 1er Cru, containing around 20% whole cluster has a slightly toasty bouquet with blackberry, boysenberry and a touch of pain grillé. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, fine acidity with a smooth, lightly spiced strawberry-driven finish. Fine. (Rated: 88-90pts)
Red Burgundy might be the world's most flexible food wine. The wine’s high acidity, medium body, medium alcohol, and low tannins make it very food friendly. Red Burgundy, with its earthy and sometimes gamey character, is a classic partner to roasted game birds, grilled duck breast, and dishes that feature mushrooms, black truffles, or are rich in umami.
