From: Hautes-Côtes de Beaune, Burgundy, France
Varietal: Pinot Noir
Taste: This classic beauty shows off exuberant and heady notes of rose, cherry, strawberry, and licorice, with touches of blackcurrant, iris, violet, and a subtle hint of pepper. It is fresh and fairly structured on the palate, marked by a minerality giving rise to crisp tannins and fruitiness, followed by a saline finish, underscored by aromas of cherry and licorice. It should also be noted that while this gorgeous red is immediately drinkable out of the glass, we’ve held on to this wine for 3-4 days with excellent results.
Pairing: Serve as an aperitif with toast topped with pork or duck rillettes or a warm pâté en croûte. It also pairs well with chicken paupiettes, coq au vin, œufs en meurette, and grilled meats like lamb chops, stuffed cabbage (check out the recipe below), or pork ribs with lentils. It will surprise you with a fillet of veal with mild curry sauce, leg of lamb, shepherd’s pie with duck, quail with honey or cherries, or filet of duck breast with morello cherries.

About. This famous domaine has been run by Caroline Lestimé, Jean-Noël’s daughter, since 1989. Its 12.5 hectares of outstanding vineyards have been certified organic since 2014, and are now run biodynamically, though are not yet certified as such. Most of the estate’s vineyards are in the heart of Chassagne, with one vineyard in the Hautes Côtes de Beaune, which looks down on St. Aubin and was planted in 2015. The wines coming off that site, ‘Clos Bortier’, are now making quite a name for themselves.
