Beaune "Les Epenottes"
Domaine du Pavillon
Côte de Beaune
Beaune is the historical capital of Burgundy wines. To the south of the Beaune appellation, the "Les Epenottes" vineyard is located on the edge of the Pommard appellation. It is therefore not surprising that its terroir is very similar in vigour to that of the neighbouring Pommard "Epenots" appellation, but with a more feminine touch, finer structure and subtle silkiness. Most of the vineyard names derived from the word “épine” (thorn) designate places where a variety of thorny trees, shrubs and bushes once grew.
The nose features candied cherry, black fruit (blackcurrant and blackberry) with toasted notes (hazelnuts, chocolate). The palate is generous and structured with well-integrated tannins. Pleasing finish with notes of violet and liquorice.
Try this wine with game, elaborate red meat dishes, and classic cheeses.
