2014 Bourgogne Rouge (Charleux, Domaine Maurice)
Domaine Maurice Charleux, Bourgogne Rouge, Burgundy, France 2014100% Pinot Noir BLACK CHERRY & PLUM, BRIGHT FRUIT, YOUTHFUL ELEGANCE Based in the southern reaches of Burgundy's Cote de Beaune, Maurice and Vincent Charleux specialize in the appellations of Maranges and Santenay, taking a stand against what they see as the globalization of wine. Eschewing anything resembling a heavy-handed or technological approach to viticulture and winemaking, they craft wines which eloquently convey the uniqueness of their small corner of Burgundy. This graceful red is at once youthfully firm and generously lush, sharing tangy plum and cherry flavors which are distinctly those of Pinot Noir alongside delicate notes of spice and earth. Serving Suggestion: Slow-roasted pork tenderloin stuffed w/ prune & garlic, topped w/ rings of sweet yellow onion. Hearty borscht w/ beets, cabbage, & mushrooms - served w/ black bread.
