2007 Nuits St. Georges, 1er Cru Les Pruliers Dom. Fernand Lecheneaut*
100% Pinot Noir
Domaine Fernand Lecheneaut
Burgundy / France
FOOD MATCHING NOTE:
Grilled rib-eye steaks on sautéed onions and garlic croutes with curry oil, grilled beef blade steaks and bell peppers with spicy orange marinade
Wonderfully ripe and packed with generous aromas of redcurrants, spicy blackberries and touches of flinty mineral notes. The palate is intense and concentrated but showing a beguiling balance between structure, fruit and new oak. Firm, lengthy finish, superb for food pairing.
