A substitute for burgundy

2014er Sasbacher Limburg Spätburgunder Rotwein trocken VDP.ERSTE LAGE

For those seeking alternatives to the ever more expensive Pinot Noir from Burgund, I would strongly recommend this wine.  Although still quite young the Sasbach Limburg would pair very well with  braised beef, venison or a Coq au vin, 
Open at least an hour in advance, this wine has a translucent, pinot red, aromatic nose with restrained red fruit, violet and spices. On the palate red fruit, a light gamey element, spices, vivacious acidity and a strong tannic backbone, the barrique is now quite well integrated. Similiar to the reds of Corton. For under 25,00€, a bargain.
