The regions in the Regional Appellation, although larger than those of the wines in the Village, Premier Cru or Grand Cru appellations, have like them the same Burgundian kinship. Like them, they benefit from the same northern climate. They come from the erosion of the same clay-limestone slopes of the vineyard, but rest on richer and deeper soils.
For this Bourgogne Rouge, Maison Camille Giroud has selected plots from the Côte Chalonnaise just next to Givry, the Côte de Beaune next to Volnay and the Côte de Nuits next to Premeaux-Prissey.
'Tasted from bottle, the 2018 Bourgogne Rouge offers gutsy red berry fruit on the nose. The palate is medium-bodied with rounded, soft tannins, tart red cherries and mulberry toward the simple, easygoing finish. Fine.' -85 points, Neal Martin, Vinous
'A ripe and reasonably fresh nose combines notes of plum and various red berries that are laced with discreet earth nuances. The sleek, vibrant and delicious flavors exude a lovely salinity on the mildly tangy and warm finish that offers unusually good depth and persistence. This is a relatively powerful wine for its level and despite a nit or two, it's really quite good.' - 87 points, Allen Meadows, Burghound.
