Orange Burgundy. Huh?
Nicolas Vauthier, or Kikro as he is known by his friends, has been a big fan of natural wines; he has been on the forefront of promoting the wines he loves for many years. He had a long career working in wine, starting by actually attending enology school and working at wineries in Washington State as well as France, learning how to make very industrial wines. He then embarked on a career at retail wine in France, where he soon discovered the wines that would become his real passion. Today, he works exclusively with the less desired appellations of Northern Burgundy, including Chitry, Irancy and Epineuil.
This wine needs decanting -- aromas of pine resin, shaved daikon, and saba. Hints of cinnamon with a touch of funk. Lots of tropical fruit and cantaloupe on the palette.
We love it with… 🥡🍜🍟
