Burgundy red wine is made almost exclusively from the pinot noir grape. The pinot noir grape has a complex set of flavor characteristics that it imparts to Burgundy wine. It produces a rich and complex red that is not particularly heavy or strong in alcohol. Burgundy reds reflect a wide range of shades, including cherry, brick red, garnet, purplish red, ruby red, tile red and mahogany.
Burgundy reds usually peak at between five to eight years of aging and should be dry and smooth on the palate. They are often accompanied by a complex set of aromas in the nose reminiscent of black cherry with hints of spiciness such as cinnamon or sassafras, along with earthy notes such as mushrooms, leather, truffles and meat.
