Red Burgundy

It was the writer Hillaire Belloc who once described a romantic assignation in this way “I forget the name of the place; I forget the name of the girl; but the wine was Chambertin….” The red wines of Burgundy are truly memorable – they can often be rich but more importantly they are balanced between tannin and velvet, bursting with red fruit and welcoming scents, and can be surprisingly delicate and seductive, with finesse and complexity rather than one dimensional power. In the finer wines it can take some years for this balance to come to fruition in the bottle so care is needed to ensure that any particular wine is not too young.
