Bourgogne Pinot Noir, also known as Bourgogne Rouge, has a fairly intense color, varying in intensity according to the vintage. It often has a violet tinge when young. This wine opens up early and offers a wide range of red berry aromas, sometimes developing animal hints when mature. The structure is supple owing to the moderate tannin content. Bourgogne Pinot Noir can be drunk young, when it will already reveal elegance and typicity.
