"L'or Rouge" translates as red gold which is a great description of this superb, savoury wine from the heart of Côte Chalonnaise in Burgundy.
It has a wonderfully intense ruby colour. The nose is so inviting and rich, full of red fruits, warm spice and something almost savoury, you just want to dive in. The palate does not disappoint either, with waves of wild strawberry, dark cherry and a lovely dry, cranberry finish, all wrapped up with plush tannin and a silky smooth texture.
The vineyard is located on the mid slope on a combination of clay and limestone which lends a wonderful minerality to the wine.
This is a treat to self wine and would be delicious with game, salmon, grilled veggies, beetroot tart or even tapas meats and cheeses.
