Attention all Burgundy lovers!
Burgundy.... the hunt for delicious wine at any cost from this iconic Pinot Noir growing region is often frustrating and sometimes confusing, even for the die-hard Franco-Oenophile.
The trick is finding gems that reward the palate without breaking the bank.
2015 Domaine Lejeune “Les Grandes Carelles” Bourgogne Rouge
Lamb Chop’s “pick of the week”
Imagine my enthusiasm when I stumbled upon a delicious red Burgundy for $25! The ripeness of this fabulous vintage really shows itself in this little beauty. There are the undercurrents of wet clay minerality, but the fruit is ripe & opulent….plump black cherry & crushed raspberry notes mingle with a subtle floral & baking spice nuance, like a dusting of potpourri. There are moderate tannins that linger on the tongue & carry those aromas on through the finish…(think more Pommard than Volnay for you Burg geeks) Really impressive & delightful for $25! Case price $22.50.
