Wine Information:

Country: France

Region: Burgundy

Appellation: Clos Saint-Denis

Variety: Pinot Noir


Despite its proximity to Clos de la Roche, Clos-Saint-Denis tends to be more like a wine from Chambolle-Musigny with a pretty fragrance of red fruits and flowers and a supple texture on the palate. While it typically shows finesse, a great Clos-Saint-Denis should have a great intensity of flavor and length.
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.

Burghound 90 points

Like the Millandes, the whole cluster vinification shows on the cool, pure and restrained aromas of red currant, dark berries, humus and an earthy whiff. The tautly muscular and impressively intense medium weight flavors exude plenty of minerality on the seductive yet quite serious finish that leaves little doubt that this will need at least 10 years to arrive at its apogee and should reward 12 to 15.
