There is an old French proverb that says, “In water one sees one's own face; but in wine one beholds the heart of another.” Maybe that’s why so many fall in love with the stunning wines of Burgundy at first sip.

When you slowly inhale the deeply scented Pinot Noir and taste its restrained yet sensuous beauty, it is not just the juice of the grape you are savoring but the dedication of the winemaker. For months and years the vines will have been pruned and tended so sunshine, rain, time, soil, and nature could tell the story of the terroir. Unlike in America where it’s quite common to drink a glass of red wine by itself, this is a wine that’s not meant to be solitary. In France, food -- utterly corrupting, mouthwatering, scrumptious food -- is always wine’s happy companion. So begins a love affair that you won’t want to end.
 
Because Burgundy is a hedonist’s delight.
