Wine Spectator | Rating: 91Ripe and dense, with dried fruit flavors of strawberry and cherry along with licorice and forest underbrush. Traditional style. Fine concentration and balance, with a chewiness to the tannins and a long, sweet finish.Author: Bruce Sanderson
Rating: 88Very tight and reserved, indeed this is presently almost completely inexpressive aromatically and the flavors are supple and even a bit light though they offer good punch and plenty of authority. The finish is generous and persistent but I can only assume that the mise has caused this to shut down because the wine is not at its usual standard and my score offers the benefit of the doubt.Issue: 2nd Quarter, 2004
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.
