Wine Spectator | Rating: 90A beautiful, supervelvety Pinot Noir. Full-bodied, with a mind-boggling texture. Has subtle ripeness underneath, as the spice, wet earth, lead pencil, mineral and smoke complexity come together on the exquisite finish. Drink now through 2015.Author: Per-Henrik Mansson
International Wine Cellar | Rating: 88Good full red. Redcurrant and tobacco on the nose. Fruity and agreeable, with enticing sweetness and a bit more clarity of flavor than the Chaignots. Quite creamy in the mouth. Hint of leather. Tannins are substantial but sweet and fat.Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: March/April 1999
Burgundy is home to some of the greatest and most expensive wines in the world. Stretching from Auxerre in the north to Lyon in the south, the region's most famous section is the limestone-rich Côte d'Or. Vineyards in Burgundy are classified according to their locations on the hillsides. Only 2% of total production is from grand cru sites, while premier cru and village-level wines are more common. It is rare for one domaine to own an entire vineyard; rather the land has been divided down to individual rows, in some cases as a result of inheritance laws. While other varieties can be found in Burgundy, and reign supreme. The best examples are capable of aging for 15 years or more, a rarity for these two varieties, making them highly valuable.
