The world is slowly going back to our normal ways again and some of us are able to fly out of the country. That means we are also able to buy Tax Free wine. Although we love the Vinmonopol here at KulTour, there are some bargains to find at the airports. This weeks wine is one of them.
Bouchard Aîné & Fils has produced Pinot Noir in the heart of Burgundy since 1750. This weeks wine is from a regional appellation used in conjunction with the word Hautes-Côtes. The Hautes-Côtes lie parallel to the slopes on which Burgundy's Grands Crus are grown and behind the latter at a higher altitude - hence the name "Hautes-Côtes" or "high slopes". So we get fine wines that gives hints of what the great Grand Crus can deliver.

Bouchard Pére & Flis Cótes de Beaune VillagesVery fine and delicate on both the nose and palate. Sweet strawberries and ripe raspberries with floral hints on the nose. The berries continue in the mouth with good minerality and length. Would be great with game, grilled chicken and semi hard cheeses.
