Domaine Blain-Gagnard is well-known as an excellent source for Chassagne-Montrachet rouge. Old vines (with some plantings dating back to 1932) give depth and concentration while aging in old barrels allows the appellation to speak clearly. This is classic Chassagne-Montrachet rouge with earthy "sauvage" flavors and a dark fruit profile.
Food Pairing: Red Burgundy might be the world's most flexible food wine. The wine's high acidity, medium body, medium alcohol, and low tannins make it very food-friendly. Red Burgundy, with its earthy and sometimes gamey character, is a classic partner to roasted game birds, grilled duck breast, and dishes that feature mushrooms, black truffles, or are rich in umami.
Exhibiting wild cherry and wild strawberry aromas and flavors, this red is juicy, well-structured and expressive. The fine balance and intensity carry the flavors through a lingering aftertaste. Best from 2019 through 2028. 70 cases imported.
