Light garnet color. Aromas and flavors of honeyed cherry and watermelon with a silky, crisp, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a sleek, interesting, medium-length finish that exhibits accents of white strawberry and cedar with a suggestion of oak flavor. A bright and lively red Burgundy with a charming style.

Burgundy Bourgogne Rouge

Bourgogne Rouge describes red wines from France's Burgundy region. The principal red grape in Burgundy, which is the basis for this region's most famous and expensive wines. Another red grape from Burgundy is Gamay, which is plated in the Beaujolais zone, in southern Burgundy.


As Burgundy is a cool region, Pinot Noir and Gamay are planted here to make wines that have appealing cherry and strawberry fruit and have only moderate levels of tannins. Generally a Bourgogne Rouge is quite approachable upon release, although the finest examples age for decades. These wines work beautifully with game birds (duck is a classic pairing), coq au vin and cream cheeses.
