With all the hype attributed to Bordeaux, Burgundy still remains the most complex and intellectual of France's dreamland of wine-making. What is lacked in varietal blending, as only two grapes are used - Pinot and Chardonnay, is made up for by the 'terroir' - the expression of geological and climatic conditions, which can vary so dramatically over as little as ten or twenty yards within a single vineyard.
Hailing from the Grand Cru vineyard of Musigni in the Clos Vougeot, his bottle of red Burgundy is delightfully summery! Were talking sweet red fruit, freshly cut roses and violets, truffle and mint. Give this ten years for everything to settle down and enjoy its long life beyond that! Serve cool (15-16oC) to give the wine refreshing lift!
