    ($53) Full medium red. Enticing aromas of red fruits, minerals, mint and earth. Offers very good sweetness, concentration and breadth, but this firmly tannic, structured wine is beginning to shut down in the bottle. Finishes with subtle length. Incidentally, Villette feels that the '99s were much harder to taste in the year after the bottling, and that the '02s may have more finesse and a better balance for long-term aging. I'd hold off on this until 2010.

    A still relatively primary nose of perfumed red fruit aromas of simply superb elegance complement precise, pure and firm middle weight flavors that offer excellent depth and outstanding length on the intensely mineral-suffused finish. This is quintessential Champans and a first rate example of the vineyard. Note however that it remains very young and will still need the better part of a decade to reach full maturity.

    CSÿ Crimson. Simply fruity at first. Big and bold and unashamedly unadorned fruit. Bravo! . Lots of acidity and elegance, but very, very embryonic at this stage. Dry finish, but impressively long. I have confidence that it will all be okay.

    Rich in cherry flavor, with hints of earth and spice. Firm and elegant, with all its components well-proportioned. Really lingers on the finish, with a lasting impression of ripe fruit. 1,600 cases made.

    Sporting a slightly dark color, the spicy red cherry-scented 2002 Volnay Champans reveals a medium-bodied character loaded with flavorful red currants, raspberries, and cherries. Its firm finish and high-toned style will require moderate patience.

    nice ruby red colour; fine Pinot nose; very elegant on the palate with noters of red fruits and sweetness

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.
