Ripe raspberries and strawberries, followed by fragrant notes of vanilla and clove. Some wet moss and undergrowth, too. It’s medium bodied with wonderfully juicy red fruit and silky tannins. Delicate and very nice. Hint of stems at the finish.
Les Teurons is one of Beaune’s most highly-respected Premier Cru vineyards. It is located on the Cote d’Or above the city of Beaune itself, and is planted mostly to Pinot Noir. Les Teurons Premier Cru wines are somewhat typical of Beaune, exhibiting good depth and weight but with some delicacy, and plentiful earthy, spicy characters.
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.
