Maison Louis Max Beaune 1er Cru Les Cent Vignes, Burgundy, France

Country: France

Colour / Style: Red

Alternative selection for: Episode 8

As recommended by: Joe Fattorini

Expect elegant cherry and raspberry fruit in this supple, delicious wine. Les Cent Vignes is a vineyard just outside Beaune itself, alongside a cote or hillside of famous names like Les Greves and Clos-du-Roi. Premier Cru wines are bigger, richer and can cope with weightier dishes than their village counterparts. Lighter beef dishes, veal and even steak tartare are all good here.
