Michel Magnien, Morey-Saint-Denis Très Girard 2016
Très Girard is a climate classified at the village level that Frédéric bottles separately from the Morey-Saint-Denis bottling due to its additional depth of flavor and firm tannic structure. Aromas of violets and plums are followed by a richly textured palate, and sturdy tannins make this wine stand out from most village-level wines. 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.
