Red Burgundy Wine
Red Burgundy wines are solely made from the PINOT NOIR grape, a grape difficult to grow. Vinification requires great care and experience. The best results produce wines of a uniquely subtle character.
The region of the Côte d'Or (south of Dijon) still produces the definitive Pinot Noir of the world. Traditionally the red wines of the Côtes de Nuits (part of the Côte d'Or, between Dijon and Beaune), are rather more robust, see our GEVREY CHAMBERTIN CLOS DU COUVENT. Slightly softer are the wines of the Côtes de Beaune (south of Beaune) like our COTES DE BEAUNE VILLAGES. At their best both display a beautiful subtlety and complexity of fruit that it is difficult to match anywhere else.
