High-toned aromas and flavors that focus on elegant red fruits (strawberry, raspberry, rhubarb), Asian spices (cinnamon, coriander, nutmeg) and intense floral notes (violets, rose petals, acacia). From very old vines (65+ years), this medium bodied Burgundy exudes finesse and freshness. Already compelling (with decanting) and will age for another decade. Try this with a rare filet mignon, garlic roast chicken, and medium to strong cheeses.

COMMENTARY: The 2017 Domaine de Bellene Nuits-Saint-Georges Vieille Vignes defines the AOC well. TASTING NOTES: This wine is firm and well-built on the palate. Pair its attractive black fruit aromas and flavors with duck confit. (Tasted: April 29, 2019, San Francisco, CA)

A pure, cherry- and strawberry-flavored red, with hints of earth and spice. Fresh and balanced, lingering on the finish, where the spice notes echo. Best from 2021 through 2033.
