Marcel Giraudon, Bourgogne Chitry Rouge, Burgundy, France 2019
100% Pinot Noir
MILD DRIED CHERRY & LIGHT PLUM, RACY MINERAL
The limestone soils surrounding the ancient fortified town of Chitry gently exert their influence on the Pinot Noir grown in the area. Wines like this beautiful and structured Burgundy benefit from this particular soil chemistry by developing strands of stunning mineral freshness to go along with lean bright fruit. This is a red wine that can be described as truly refreshing as well as profoundly flavored. One of our best values in Burgundy.
Serving Suggestion: Salmon is a natural choice, and a good one. But we had this with a five mushroom pasta and it knocked us flat. Yum.
