Wine Spectator | Rating: 91Fresh, clean and loaded with mineral notes. Sleek and vibrant, it builds on the palate, with lemon, and herb flavors adding complexity. A little hot, but firm. This will settle down with a year or so in the bottle.Author: Bruce Sanderson
Rating: 90There are hints of the exotic here too that mix with pretty white flower and earth notes that precede racy, bright, intense and mineral-driven flavors that offer outstanding complexity and finishing verve. This is a really pretty effort and highly recommended and one that should reward 4 to 5 years of cellar time.Issue: 3rd Quarter, 2005
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.
