The Easter weekend is nearly upon us and so here are a pair of wines from one France’s most traditional and historic wine regions to accompany any meals you may have in mind.
Louis Jadot’s current vintages of their Bourgogne red and white are really well-made and a good introduction to the region.
Bourgogne Chardonnay 2009 (Tesco £11.29) is a lovely fresh example of a simple white Burgundy.
There is a little oak in the background but it just adds a little structure and roundness to the pear and white fruit notes.
It’s a very elegant wine which would work well with a poached whole salmon or even a roast chicken.
Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2008
Very fresh with red cherries on the nose, followed by a silky mouth feel with soft tannins. Will work with an Easter roast leg of lamb.
Available from Tesco, £11.29
