RED Pierre Bouree Fils, Nuits Saint Georges 2008$ 152
100% Pinot Noir. Powerful and strongly-built, this is the wine that confers on the Cote de Nuits region its noble reputation of a sturdy character. Its normal partners would be any meat that is at once full-flavoured and virile (roast lamb, rib steak, or breast of fattened duck), as the wine firmly coats and envelops its fibrous texture. Feathered game, similarly, responds to the charm of the wild and animal aromas which the wine develops with age. Sophisticated diners will also serve it with certain fish dishes such as carp in red-wine sauce.
Cheeses: soft centered cheeses in the style of Epoisses, Langres or Soumaintrain.
Serving temperature: 15 to 16°C.
