Bourgogne Guy Chaumont Pinot Noir 2009
From Burgundy in France, this wine is made of 100% Pinot Noir grapes. It has scents of raspberry, leather, and spice on the nose. The taste is delicate yet rich in fruit. Savory scents of stuffing and sage are wrapped around pure, light fruit with an elegant dry finish. This wine pairs well with roasted meat, cheeses and hearty casseroles.
Guy Chaumont produces wines from vineyards on the Cote Chalonnaise, a low ridge in the southern part of France's famous Burgundy region. Cote Chalonnaise now merits its own appellation to distinguish these wines from other Burgundys. Its reds are renowned for ripe fruit and drinkability compared to more tannic and concentrated reds from the areas further north around Beaune.
