    ($265) Subdued, brooding nose hints at pear, clove and nut oil. Superconcentrated, rich and deep, with compelling sweetness of apple and pear fruit perfectly balanced by powerful acids (5. 2 grams per liter, with a pH of 3. 11, according to Boillot). Offers an uncanny combination of fat, density of texture and sheer sweetness. |This needs ten years despite its great early sucrosite,| notes Boillot. Finishes with outstanding palate-staining length. Another monument of the vintage.

    Boillot's 2002 Batard-Montrachet offers up aromas of minerals and limestone. This big, broad, medium to full-bodied wine is suave and satiny-textured. Lush layers of minerals, bacon, smoke, apples, and pears can be found in its complex, concentrated personality. This exceptional effort also reveals a long, silky, fruit-filled finish.

    A huge, indeed massive nose of exotic, very ripe orchard fruits, especially peach with white flowers and a hint of honey all framed in oak spice introduces full-bodied, weighty flavors displaying excellent density, depth and concentration. This is as big as the Montrachet and the length, mid-palate punch and persistence it shows is nothing short of phenomenal.

    Opened and poured. Bright yellow color, just starting to deepen. A reluctant nose, with some hints of white flowers and apple. Fresh and lively acidity, with some citrus and apple flavors. Flavors flow into a powerful and lengthy finish. Only the nose was lacking ...

    Still chock full of finesse, but losing a bit on the back end.

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, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay reign supreme. The best examples are capable of aging for 15 years or more, a rarity for these two varieties, making them highly valuable.
