Bourgogne Cote d’Or Pinot Noir, Burgundy Red Wine
£19.00 Per Bottle
Bourgogne Cote-d’Or has a warm finish, making it a great dessert wine.
Its strong taste and distinctive aromas come from its sweet spices, woodland fruits and fresh red fruits.
You’ll enjoy this clean and dry wine with a traditional French blue cheese that’s a great match for its deep flavours.
You’ll get lovely notes of woodlands fruit with this red burgundy, as well as cherry, strawberry and raspberry. The aroma comes courtesy of tobacco and sweet spices, and the tannins give it a real warm finish.
Recommended food pairings
A strong red burgundy like this makes a great wine with cheese after a meal. For tasting menus, we pair ours with a Bleu D’Auvergne: a classic, strong French blue-veined cheese that can stand up to the strength of this Pinot Noir.
Grape harvest is done manually at Domaine Coche-Bizouard where this wine is produced. Typically, this harvest happens later than for other winegrowers in the region, sometimes up to a week behind. The reds are not destalked before fermenting.
All wines at Domaine Coche-Bizouard are fermented slowly for a long time. The wines are then put into a barrique. As a rule, 25 percent of the barrel is new wine, which is aged for 18 to 20 months.

Our utmost concern is get you the right cheese in the right condition right to your door. With that in mind please allow 3-5 working days for your cheese box to arrive.
However the package will be posted on a next day service so as not to spend too much time in transit. Each package will come with a gel ice pack to keep the temperature in the box as low as possible.
