Elodie Roy Hautes-Côtes de Beaune Rouge 2021​

Hautes-Côtes de Beaune, Burgundy, France

Varietal : 100% Pinot Noir

Price: P 2,500

Tasting Notes
Hallmark Pinot Noir aromas of raspberry, ripe cherry and a hint of clove release with a lovely, juicy energy. Medium-bodied, it is ample and fleshy on the palate with lifting acidity and mellow tannins.

Food Pairing Suggestions
Great on its own or as an aperitif, and will complement poultry, like aromatic roast chicken, or grilled swordfish, and red meats.

Winemaker Notes
Elodie Roy left a career in banking to retrace her steps back home in Burgundy and work for 11 years at Domaine Ann Gros, before taking over 24 acres of family vineyards in Côte de Nuits. Domaine Elodie Roy debuted in 2018, and 2021 is its fourth vintage.

Wine Enthusiast 91 points
Varietal : Valdiguié
Price: P P 1,200

Tasting Notes
Raspberry, tart strawberry, pomegranate and hisbiscus aromas lead to a palate of red currant, purple flower, and mild white pepper flavors. Light-bodied, zesty, crisp and refreshing, with mid-palate acidity and a juicy, mouth-watering, fresh-fruit finish.

Food Pairing Suggestions
Served slightly chilled with grilled meat and barbecues, slow-cooked ribs, and seared vegetables. Great with roast duck and plum sauce, and with dried fruit and cheese.

Mendoza, Argentina
James Suckling 92 pts
Varietal : 100% Malbec

Price: P 1,200

Tasting Notes
Blackberries, ripe red cherries, roses, and blueberries on both the nose and palate. A whiff of cut tobacco and ground nutmeg. Medium-bodied, with good concentration, juicy tannins, staying round and smooth to the finish.

Food Pairing Suggestions
Meat immediately comes to mind – grilled / a la brasa, seasoned, braised or stewed. Would definitely go well with charcuterie and aged cheese, stuffed and herby-sauced pasta, roasted capsicum and aromatic vegetables.

Food Pairing Suggestions
This can be your everyday table wine and will pair nicely with anything light and bright like a green salad or blue cheese or even chocolate!

Great complement to dishes with lean and spicy red meat, poultry or pork.
