Chanson, Le Bourgogne Pinot Noir - Magnum
Repeat after me: Good Burgundy does not need to cost an arm and a leg. The secret to sourcing quality stuff at the right price is to know your producers, and Chanson Père et Fils is a legitimate name known to provide value for money, whether you’re talking entry-level Bourgogne or Premier Cru Clos des Fèves. Le Bourgogne Pinot Noir is, quite simply, a very well made red Burgundy. Bright red in colour and with powerful aromas of ripe berry fruit, liquorice and spice, you could easily mistake this for a village-level offering or better. In the mouth it’s complex with smooth tannins and great length.
WHAT IT GOES WITH
This is your new go-to red, simple as that. Use a little (or a lot) in your next boeuf bourguignonand serve the rest up to accompany it. It’ll also go great with most tomato-based sauces and earthy, mushroom-based dishes.
