Red wines from Beaune tend to show red fruit character that can range from fine and delicate to plump and succulent, depending on the location of the vineyard. Les Cents Vignes shows fresh, pretty aromas that complement rich cherry and raspberry flavors supported by a silky texture. Xavier Monnot describes this wine as "easy to drink." 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.

The rich, dense texture is well-plied by black cherry, blackberry and violet flavors. A solid layer of tannins delivers grip, with the saturated fruit in lockstep. Terrific finish. Best from 2021 through 2033. 680 cases made.

The 2015 Beaune 1er Cru Cents Vignes, which tends to produce small cluster and concentrated grapes, has a perfumed and quite floral bouquet with copious creme de cassis and blueberry scents - very sensual. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, succulent in the mouth with good backbone on the saline finish. I like this a lot and it might turn out to be the best release from Xavier Monnot in 2015. Recommended.
