    ($150) Deep, saturated ruby-red. Rather extractive aromas of dark berries, chocolate and tarry oak. A distinctly musclebound wine, with strong flavors of dark fruits. But I find this a bit gritty, even brutal, and the tannins are a bit coarse. (W. J. Deutsch & Sons, Ltd., White Plains, NY)

    Aromas of black cherry and blackberry burst forth to introduce this rich, round Pinot, then the wall of tannins takes over. Though impressive, it lacks integration, and there are a lot of tannins to be absorbed.

    Muscular yet seamless, elegant yet dense and plush, the cassis and black cherry-scented 2002 Echezeaux is a fabulous effort. Its satin-textured, medium to full-bodied personality bursts with black cherries, spices, and blackberries. This seductive wine is already a hedonist's dream yet there's no reason to believe it won't stand the test of time.

    This too is quite ripe, revealing black raspberry and blueberry on the nose with a much better sense of precision and detail on the sappy, structured and intense flavors possessing a sweet, long, concentrated finish. Again, this isn't my style of burgundy but there is good 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.
