Chantereves Bourgogne Rouge is a underclassified Haute Côte de Beaune from the village of Paris L'Hopital. There is an unusual granite soil there which gives wine the structure, acidity and tannins. This wine was fermented with 100% whole clusters (1st time this vintage) and aged 100% in barrels but saw no new oak. There is minimal sulphur and intervention. Pale alizarin crimson color, very lively spicy and piquant nose, great cut and acidity on the palate. This is the kind of wine that makes you salivate and will be delicious with a wide variety of foods. A lovely simple Red Burgundy that I enjoyed last night with a beautiful sauteed Tautog with clams.
