Aged for thirteen months in oak barrel, this is dark and rich, with aromas of dark cherries leading to flavours of cherries and blackberries. There's a hint of vanilla and earthy spice from the oak ageing. This is a perfect example of Beaune 1er Cru.

Buy this if...you love powerful Pinot Noir.

Spoil yourself (or another) with this stunning Premier Cru rich with red berry fruit and spice.

The Producer

This magnificent property, which dates back to the 9th Century, is also known as Chateau Philippe le Hardi, as it was once owned by the first Duc of Burgundy. Philippe le Hardi is famous for the first person who banned the cultivation of Gamay in the Cote d’Or, saying in his edict of 1395 that only Pinot Noir could be used in the production of red wines from the already fabled slopes. Despite its long history, the property had fallen on hard times until it was taken by the French bank Credit Agricole in recent years. They have invested heavily, bringing in a new team to support the general manager, Gerard Fagnoni, and putting the emphasis on quality. The property has 98 hectares of vineyard, 72 of which are in Mercurey.

The Winemaker

Winemaker Gerard Fagnoni vinifies the hand-harvested grapes with cold soaking for seven days at 8C to extract colour and flavour from the skins. Temperature controlled fermentation lasted 12-14 days with daily pumping over, finishing with a rack and return to impart the grainy tannins that give the wines a lovely structure and length. The wine was then aged in oak barrels for 13 months of which 20% were new, before being bottled.

The Region

Burgundy's Cote de Beaune is the southern half of the famous Cote d'Or, perhaps the world's most famous wine growing slopes, south of the town of Beaune. More whites are produced here than reds, with world famous names including Meursault and Puligny-Montrachet as well as the generic Bourgogne Blanc wines and small amounts of Pinot Noir from the Beaune appellation.

Beef Stew & Dumplings

A hearty rich stew calls for a ripe savoury red, rather than very rich, full-bodied styles - think smooth Pinot Noir from Château De Santenay in Beaune or Grenache, with good freshness on the finish.

Rosemary Roast Turkey

Not just a Christmas classic. The mix of light and dark meats and herbaceous rosemary make this dish the perfect match for smooth, silky reds such as Château De Santenay Beaune Premier Cru Clos Du Roi.

Puy Lentil Bolognese

An earthy, vegetarian sauce will complement the savoury flavours in Burgundian reds.
