MARC ALEXANDRE Bourgogne Rouge 2019
Capricious and difficult to cultivate, fragile and susceptible to disease, the Pinot Noir require a northern continental climate to be able to flourish fully and thus express all its complexity. Our Bourgogne Pinot Noir grows near more prestigious crus. It’s close neighbors are separated by only hundreds or sometimes even as little as tens of meters. The vineyards tend to be located along the foot of the wine-growing slopes on limestone soils mixed with some clays and marls
This wine bring first a basket of small red and black fruits (strawberry, cherry, blackcurrant, and bilberry) later evolving into cooked prune, peppery notes, and notes of animal, underbrush and mushroom. It is lively and structured in the mouth with a well-rounded and supple backbone. Tannins and fruit go hand in hand and the chewiness matches the power of the secondary aromas.
This tender and fruity burgundy will accompany grilled red meats, roasts, sweet game and soft cheeses such as Camembert and Brie
