International Wine Cellar | Rating: 89Bright red. Subtly complex, less fruit-dominated nose hints at truffle, smoke and earth. Fatter and broader in the mouth, with a stronger impression of extract. Very consistent from start to sweet, lingering finish. Tannins are dusty and fine.Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: March/April 2003
Wine Advocate | Rating: 88Fresh black raspberries compose the aromatic profile of the medium to dark ruby-colored 2001 Nuits-St.-Georges Les Perrieres. Light to medium-bodied and possessing excellent depth of fruit, this wine offers a spice-laden blackberry-flavored personality. Its finish reveals a hint of stemmy/woody tannin that kept its score from being higher. Projected maturity: now-2008.Author: Pierre Rovani
Rating: 16Rich and full and beguiling. Very charming. Dry end. Quite astringent. Fresher than Aux Chaignots. (cask sample)Author: Jancis RobinsonIssue: 10/25/2005
International Wine Cellar | Rating: 89An intense minerality marks both the red fruit nose and the earthy, linear, direct, medium weight, firmly structured flavors that display quality length. Very pretty and this offers fine intensity but it just doesn't quite have the depth of the RonciŠres.Issue: 1st Quarter, 2003
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.
