"It’s a drinker with subtle violet, strawberry and raspberry notes. Seasoned with cloves, forest floor, morels and licorice. The mouthwatering acidity keeps in all nicely packaged from start to finish. This cries out for food hearty poultry preparations as well as the perfect match for soft-centre cheeses such as Camembert, Brie de Meaux, and Reblochon." - Neil Mechanic, Invino Insider 92 points
Scratching your head over the price of quality 1er Cru Red Burgundy? Pressures of supply and demand are not in your favor for scoring deals within the category. I tend to steer my clients to the Cote Chalonnaise. specifically the Pinots of Givry (the appellation just south of Mercurey).
Domaine Danjean-Berthoux never failed me in the restaurant biz and this 1er Cru offering will impress discerning Burghounds. Serious collectors will find this as a perfect house wine. It comes to the party out of the gate, but has some natural tannins to lay down for another 2 to 3 years no problem.
