Save $15.01 (21%)
Les Pitures is robust and opulent with violet, plum, earth and a subtle spiciness. The wine's high acidity, medium body, medium alcohol, and low tannins make it very food-friendly. Pairings: 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.
Red Showing sweet spice and toasty oak aromas, this red boasts cherry, plum, tea and black pepper flavors. A bit monolithic today, with dense, dusty tannins on the long finish. Best from 2023 through 2043.-B.S.
