Blason de Bourgogne Hautes-Cotes de Beaune 2008

It's not often you buy a Burgundy, white or red, for under £7 and it's very good. I wouldn't say this is 'very good' but it's definitely good. I've been disappointed with Blason's wines before (especially the whites), so I wasn't really expecting too much.

An unmistakably French Pinot Noir with good cherry flavours, this should satisfy the budget-minded Burgundy lover. It won't blow you away, but you'll be left with a decent glass of wine and the feeling of getting a bargain.

Burgundy, France
£6.65 (£9.99)


  1. Thanks for sharing the review of Blason de Bourgogne Hautes-Cotes de Beaune 2008. will put this bottle to test and hope it tastes well.

  2. It is not worth the money. The wine is thin and sharp; I would have been diappointed for £3.

    I had the misfortune to buy this at Morrisons, where it was on offer at £6.00, reduced from £12.99. An obvious con for what I'd expect to buy for about £8.00 but I thought at only £6.00 it was worth a punt. In fact, it is an extremely poor wine fron a producer trading on the Hautes Cotes name.

  3. I have to agree with Julian, thin and acidic with a bitter anise undertow, a very poor wine.
    My bottles went back for a full refund.
