International Wine Cellar | Rating: 87($40) Medium red. Very ripe aromas of red berries, iron, roasted meat and Cuba n tobacco. Smooth, concentrated and vinous, with restrained sweetness. Finishes with firm, harmonious tannins and very good length.Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: March/April 2005
Wine Advocate | Rating: 89Deep, dark cherry and spice aromas are found in the expressive scents of the 2002 Nuits-St.-Georges Les Charmois. Medium-bodied and silky, this delightful wine coats the taster's palate with supple layers of sweet blueberries and cherries.Author: Pierre Rovani
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.
