Hautes-Côtes de Beaune
Producer: Domaine Cornu
Wine Style: Red
Region: Burgundy, Côtes de Beaune
Désignation: Hautes-Côtes de Beaune
Grape Variety: Pinot Noir
Description: Garnet in color with hints of bright red. The nose offers aromas of blackcurrant, notes of rose, cherry, strawberry, and licorice, with touches of blueberry, iris, violet, pepper, and mint. In the mouth, it is fresh and fairly structured, marked by a minerality giving rise to crisp tannins and fruitiness, followed by a clean finish. Serving temperature: 14-16°C.
Food Pairing: Its spry fruitiness and volume on the palate make it a great match for generous, convivial dishes. Serve as an aperitif with toast topped with pork or duck paté. It also pairs well with chicken dishes, coq au vin, and grilled meats like lamb chops, sausages. It will surprise you with a fillet of veal with mild curry sauce, leg of lamb or shepherd’s pie. In terms of cheeses, opt for creamy soft cheeses like Camembert, Brillat-Savarin, or Morbier and Reblochon.
