  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 90

    ($279) Deep red. Aromas of medicinal black cherry, minerals and licorice; as ripe as this is, it's also distinctly cooler in the context of this collection. Supple and intense, with surprisingly fresh flavors of black cherry, violet and licorice. Finishes with very fine tannins and exellent length. This is very successful for the year.

    Sweet black cherry, cassis and vanilla aromas and flavors saturate the palate in this seductive red. It's ripe and dense, yet fresh and vibrant. Just a touch of heat on the finish, but also a mineral component that adds complexity and depth. 100 cases made.

  • Wine Advocate | Rating: 93

    The exuberant aromatics of the 2003 Clos Vougeot are filled with boldly spicy red as well as black cherries. Medium to full-bodied, rich, and plush, this expressive wine displays softly-textured red and black fruits. Angle-free and persistent, it is a candidate for drinking between 2006 and 2014.

  • Burghound | Rating: 91

    This is remarkably exuberant for a young Clos de Vougeot with fresh and airy earthy red and black berry aromas that merge into huge, dense and very plumy full-bodied flavors that possess real finishing lift and punch. The power here is impressive but it's not top heavy and while this is particular in style as it is a very ripe wine but it manages to dazzle anyway.

  • This relatively young domaine - founded in the early 1980s - has a tragic history. Just as Denis Mortet, and his acclaimed wines, were attaining great success, M. Mortet took his own life (January 2006). However, we are left with a domaine whose immaculate vineyards span 10 hectares in 14 different appellations. The wines are intense, pure, undeniably rich pleasures to drink and age. 100% new French oak is used on all of the wines. The 2005s are the last vintage that he tended from vine to bottle and perfectly honor his limitless passion and commitment to making the very best he could.

    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.
