Chassagne-Montrachet rouge can have some of the same characteristics found in the red wines of the Côte de Nuits. Also, they can have some of the same tannins and earthiness found in Nuits-Saint-Georges and the premier crus, and can occasionally rival the complexity and longevity found in more famous red wine villages. Food Pairing Red Burgundy might be the world's most flexible food wine. The wine's high acidity, medium body, medium alcohol, and low tannins make it very food-friendly. Red Burgundy, with its earthy and sometimes gamey character, is a classic partner to roasted game birds, grilled duck breast, and dishes that feature mushrooms, black truffles, or are rich in umami.
This is high-toned, offering kirsch, violet, earth and white pepper aromas and flavors. The tannins are dusty on the finish. Drink now through 2018. 20 cases imported.
