|This 2000 Burgundy was purchased in France. The wine starts
off with a medium ruby/mahogany core that fades to a brick
rim. On the nose, aromas of black tea, cranberry, raspberry
and even black cherry can be noted along with smokiness. In
the mouth the wine begs for a food pairing. The zesty even
sharp acidity offers structure in a body that shows a firm
consistency. The fine astringent tannins provide finishing
touches for its medium lean body. The wine finishes modestly
with an overall developed, yet delicate, intensity.
After tasting we paired this wine with a Fourme d'Ambert cheese. Fourme d'Ambert is more supple and dense than many blues. Its flavor is savory and nutty and really made the wine come into its own.
