Seek out something original with Rosé wines from Bourgogne

 

It’s maybe not the first color one thinks of in relation to Bourgogne wines, but these little-known treasures definitely deserve your attention! Mainly produced from Pinot Noir or Gamay, these wines also benefit from the unique Bourgogne terroir and the expertise of the region’s winegrowers.

 

Marsannay rosé

Described as the “Golden Gateway to the Côte de Nuits”, the Marsannay AOC is the only Village appellation in Bourgogne that is produced in three colors.
Its wines are smooth and fruity, with notes of pêche de vigne and redcurrant. They are characteristically full in the mouth, vigorous and indulgent. Like the appellation’s red wines, Marsannay rosés are produced from the Pinot Noir grape. 

These wines can be enjoyed throughout a meal, with summer barbecues, mixed salads, fine cold cuts, white meats, crab, or red mullet. Spicy, Asian, and Mediterranean dishes also provide great pairings. And after a few years, why not try a Marsannay rosé as a divine accompaniment to dessert!

 

Régionale Bourgogne appellations with a hint of pink!

Most Bourgogne rosé wines are Régionale appellations: Bourgogne, Bourgogne Passe-Tout-Grains, and Côteaux Bourguignon. Some of these Régionale Bourgogne appellations reflect their unique terroir through an additional geographic denomination, resulting in very diverse wines with an unbeatable quality-price-pleasure ratio: Bourgogne Chitry, Bourgogne Côte Chalonnaise, Bourgogne Côte Saint Jacques, Bourgogne Côtes d’Auxerre, Bourgogne Coulanges la Vineuse, Bourgogne Epineuil, Bourgogne Hautes Côtes de Beaune et Bourgogne Hautes Côtes de Nuits.

The Mâcon appellation is mainly white but there are also red and rosé versions. These wines stand out through a very significant detail, namely that they are made from the red Gamay varietal, the emblematic grape of the southern part of Bourgogne These wines offer all the indulgence and liveliness that comes with the Gamay varietal. They marry perfectly with cold cuts, couscous, tajines, tabbouleh, vegetarian bakes, omelets, or onion tart.

To produce a sparkling pink version, these Crémant de Bourgogne wines are made from the Pinot Noir grape, with or without the addition of Gamay, and have a golden or pink hue to them. They are delicate wines with subtle red fruit aromas. Crémant de Bourgogne rosé makes a delicious accompaniment to dessert, with powerful floral aromas that are wonderful with ice-creams to offer a fresh finish to any meal.
