The Devillard family’s Coteaux Bourguignons 'le Renard' has long been the house red Burgundy, served in a carafe, chez Allard, the great Burgundian latin quarter, left bank bistro, founded by a peasant cook from Burgundy, Marthe Allard nearly a century ago. It is now owned by the great Alain Ducasse. David Campbell designed the first Everyman book with his printer on the table cloth over a glass of this delicious wine in 1990. 2017 was a very good Burgundy vintage


Our Tasting Notes

Lovely deep ruby colour with garnet tints. Aromas of summer berry, delicate peony and rose. On the palate, nice freshness with juicy red fruit flavours and fine, light body. This is all rounded off with floral notes and soft tannins for a smooth structure. Great harmony here.

‘Le Renard’ Coteaux Bourguignons comes from the Devillard family who have some brilliant, high-quality domaines in Burgundy. Their philosophy is to express the 'purest taste of each grape varietal' they use. Delicious juicy and delightful red Burgundy with wonderful red fruit expression from this exceptional Burgundy vintage.


"The 2017 Coteaux Bourguignons ‘Le Renard’, a Pinot Noir/Gamay blend of quite some breeding from vineyards in Burgundy owned by the Devillard family. We all know how ridiculously overpriced burgundy can be and so what a treat it is to find something tasty that I can darn well afford. I’m told that it’s the house red burgundy at Chez Allard, the famous Parisian bistro owned by the great Alain Ducasse, which ain’t a bad reference. 2017 was a stellar vintage in Burgundy and this has plenty of ripe — yet carefully restrained — red fruit, subtle tannins and a refreshing finish."
