    Wine of the Week: Burgundy reds -- "There probably isn’t a more reasonable way to stick your toe in the proverbial waters of Burgundy than with the 2016 Domaine Faiveley Bourgogne Rouge, which is a masterful blend of grapes sourced from vineyards spread throughout the terroirs of the Côte de Nuits and the Côte de Beaune. Made by one of the most famous négociants in Burgundy, this lovely pinot noir features a wonderful bouquet of strawberry, black plum and graphite. Concentrated flavors of ripe Rainier cherry, wild strawberry, spice and violets are in balance with the firm tannins and abundant acidity. A stunning wine..."

    "Faiveley's 2016 Bourgogne Pinot Noir reveals a lovely bouquet of ripe cherries, grilled meats and woodsmoke, framed by a light touch of reduction that rapidly dissipates in the glass. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, rich and fleshy, with juicy acids and youthfully chewy structuring tannins. It's a hearty, successful effort in a vintage that didn't always lend itself to generic Bourgogne, which tended to be hit hard by frost."

    "Intriguing aromas of baking spices and ripe blueberries fill in the bouquet. The fine tannins and modest acidity hold up the abundant flavors of red cherries, raspberries and cranberries all the way through the medium finish. A nice match with teriyaki salmon."
