Beaune 1er Cru "Les Cents Vignes" 2009, Bitouzet-Prieur
Tasted at the domaine, this Beaune 1er cru starts with a blood orange and ripe red currant nose then sweetens up to raspberry. There's a lot in the glass. Rich cherry and plum flavours, plenty of ripe tannins. Made in a savoury style from old vines this is a stern and nevertheless berry fruit-driven Beaune which will be a great dinner companion for cannette, chevreuil or pintade.
