Chassagne Montrachet "Les Voillenots Dessous"
Producer: Domaine Bouton
Wine Style: Red
Region: Burgundy, Côtes de Beaune
Désignation: Chassagne Montrachet "Les Voillenots Dessous"
Grape Variety: Pinot Noir
Description: Brilliant, with purplish highlights – this wine is a well-coloured Pinot Noir. Aromas of Morello cherry and cherry-pit, wild strawberry, gooseberry, and raspberry are commonly present. Notes of animal and spice complete the bouquet. In the mouth, this wine has real substance. Its delicious fleshiness partly conceals tannins which, though somewhat austere in youth, give way with maturity to a concentrated and taste-filled structure, intriguing in its complexity.
Food Pairing: Powerful and tannic, it flatters good quality meats such as grilled or roast lamb, coating their fibres in the mouth. Its aromatic power balances that of grilled pork and of curried or tandoori-style poultry.
Serving temperature: 14 to 16°C.
