This week, the Ideal Wine Company continues its exploration of Burgundy Wine country by letting you know why you should buy the Emmanuel Rouget Echezeaux 1995.
Burgundy is a Wine Region to Rival Champagne, Bordeaux
As a provider of top quality, luxury fine wines, the Ideal Wine Company always strives to bring you the most mouth-wateringly delicious vintages from around the world. That’s why we feature a range of Burgundian wines.
Based in the eastern climes of the global wine-making power of France, Burgundy is a wine region to rival international super powers Champagne and Bordeaux. Known for its range of dry reds artfully crafted from the region’s abundant pinot noir grapes, a bottle of Burgundy’s finest will stand as a jewel of your wine collection.
1995, a Fantastic Year for Burgundian Wines
1995 was a fantastic year for the region as far as viticulture goes. Despite the Burgundy’s rather unsettled spring, with scattered hail and late flowering, its summer was dry and hot, with rain returning in late September, at the height of grape picking season.
The grapes resisted the humidity admirably – showing little evidence of rot – to produce wines that were rich and well balanced, with good structure and firm tannins. One of the best examples of the stellar 1995 Burgundian is the Emmanuel Rouget Echezeaux 1995; a king among Burgundian dry reds.
