Beaune 1er Cru "Les Aigrots"
Côte de Beaune
AOC Premier Cru
Beaune is the historical capital of Burgundy wines. "Les Aigrots" is a plot, located west of Beaune, on the upper part of the hillside. Its name comes from the word “aigrot”which, in the Burgundian dialect, refers to holly, the thorny shrub with red berries which grew everywhere on the hill at the time the name was given.
The nose offers subtle aromas of red berries, with spicy notes and a hint of forest undergrowth. On the palate, the tannins are silky and contribute to this wine’s length.
Pairs well with red meats, game and classic cheeses.
