2016 Bourgogne Rouge "Cuvée Gérard" (Seguin, Domaine Gerard)
Domaine Gérard Seguin, Bourgogne Rouge "Cuvée Gérard", Burgundy, France 2016100% Pinot Noir FOREST BERRIES & PLUM, AUTUMN EARTH, HINTS OF SANDALWOOD Seguin’s vineyards, located in the Cote de Nuits (northern half of Burgundy’s illustrious Cote-d’Or) have, unsurprisingly, brought us some of our favorite French Pinot Noirs over the years. This offering, whose label may lack the distinction of a prestigious village name on the label, is nothing short of exemplary, bringing together earthy elegance and energetic blackish-red fruit with that Burgundian signature of forest-ish mystique. Serving Suggestion: Crisp quail roasted w/ shallots, rosemary, & garlic. Hot soba noodle soup w/ scallions, mushrooms, & toasted sesame seeds.
