Albert Bichot Santenay Clos Rousseau 2019
|Region||France, Burgundy, Santenay|
Typical of the Cote de Beaune reds, the nose is intensely fruity with redcurrant, plum and black cherry aromas enhanced with hints of white pepper and kirsch. Nervy, fleshy and generous, this wine has character and good structure. The finish is long and fruity. This is an ideal wine for fine dishes such as red meat, game and classic cheeses.
Delicate notes of toast and crushed granite accent zippy red cherry and redcurrant flavors in this fresh-fruited, medium-bodied wine. Matured 14 to 16 months in 100% oak (20% to 30% new), it balances crisp red-fruit flavors against hints of charry caramel and black pepper. Fine, silky tannins make it approachable young but the wine is likely to improve through 2030 and hold much longer.
