    I love this perky little wine. The nose offers delicious crunchy red fruit, herbs and a hint of smokey earth. Strawberry, red currant and cranberry linger on the palate. Fresh juicy acidity make this wine really easy drinking. This wine would be great with cheese and smoked meats.

    Bourgogne Rouge under $20 can be a hit or miss. When they are a hit like this one, they don't last long so stock up while you can. With fruit sourced from Nuits-Saint-Georges and Marsannay, this shows the structure and concentration of the Cote de Nuits plus some inviting allspice and harmonious acidity. If you're wondering about the fruit profile of this new vintage, consider 2014 as more cranberry , 2015 ripe black cherry, and 2016 an amalgamation of both with an extra zip of acidity.

    Topping my list of value-driven Springtime wine is Boisset's Les Ursulines - a beautifully done entry-level red Burgundy. Showing lots of youthful, bright cherry fruit and warm spices, this is a clean, super refreshing table wine that is versatile and easy drinking. Super Recommended!

    This is very attractive little Bourgogne with quite serious profile! It opens up with aromas of black currants and hints of cedar. On the palate it's juicy and firmly structured, with pomegranate, red plum and plum coulis flavors bursting on the palate with touch ofearth and spice. Would be a great accompaniment to duck or quail.

    Classic Bourgogne Rouge. A nose of dark cherries and fine earthiness. The palate is light polished and bright with more snappy red fruit playing against fine earthy notes.

    A great introduction to the stunning 2016 red Burgundy vintage the 2016 Jean Claude Boisset Bourgogne Rouge "Les Ursulines" is a great spring time red. Bright red cherry fruit with subtle spice and dried herbs notes the wine shows great energy and vibrancy on the palate with a firm backbone and a rush of zippy red fruits on the finish.
    Top Value! Drink from 2018 to 2020

    I am really enjoying the entry level 2016 red Burgundy I have had a chance to taste and I especially enjoyed the Boisset Les Ursulines. A somewhat cooler vintage than 2015 the Les Ursuline still shines with pretty and generous fruit. Dark rich fruit with a touch of smokey earth comes through with lovely balancing acid and some oak weight. For under 20 this is exactly the type of easy drinking everyday Burgundy that we have been becoming known for and a spectacular addition to the daily drinkers.
