    ($82) Bright, deep red-ruby color. Wonderful perfumed aromas of sappy red raspberry, minerals and licorice. Silky, lacy and aromatic; opulent and generous yet quite primary. Finer than usual for this wine at Grivot. Crunchy red berry flavors lifted by a note of licorice. Finishes long and classy.

    |Its terroir immensely benefited from the dryness of the vintage,| said Grivot while serving his outstanding 2002 Clos Vougeot. Aromatically, this bold wine reveals loads of spicy red cherries. On the palate it is wonderfully sweet, velvety-textured, and extroverted. Copious quantities of red cherries, spices, candied raspberries and earth envelope this beauty's ripe tannin. It will be delicious relatively young and should age extremely well.

    Deep red. Exciting nose! Deep red fruit cocktail. Round and sumptuous. 'My wines were almost sophisticated in 2002', Etienne Grivot told me! It is certainly his very best year to date, and his 2001s were moving in this more user-friendly direction. Gorgeous interplay of defined elements.

    Tight and backward, but offers dense textures and concentrated cherry, blackberry and spice flavors. A solid core of fruit midpalate. Tannins are robust now; needs to be stored about 10 years. 125 cases imported.

    Ripe, sweet, gamy and very earthy pinot fruit aromas blend into mouth coating, suave, deep and impressively scaled and concentrated flavors that display plenty of power and a certain textured chewy quality on the explosively long but austere back end. Terrific quality with superb underlying material.

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.
