This appellation gets its name from the
fact that the grapes that go into its making come from the different
villages in central Burgundy’s Côte de Beaune. The vines are planted on
both hillsides and foothills in calcareous clay soil, facing
east-southeast. These are all factors that favour good exposure to the
sun and good soil drainage.
Tasting This Côte de Beaune Villages has a very
slightly woody nose with a few smoked notes, fruity aromas of strawberry
and redcurrant and a finish reminiscent of liquorice. Boasting very
pleasing roundness, this wine is endowed with fine tannins and good
structure. The finish is both harmonious and elegant.
Food/wine pairing:Ideal with red meats, small game and fine cheeses.
Serving and keeping Serve between 14 and 16°C (57°F - 60°F)
This wine may be enjoyed now or laid down for 3 to 5 years or more.
