Rating: 94Heady and opulent, this red offers concentrated black cherry and blackberry aromas and flavors with hints of chocolate and spice. The oak is well-integrated, as are the refined tannins. It combines a lush texture with class and length. 15 cases imported.Author: Bruce Sanderson
Rating: 93An extremely ripe, almost port-like nose without the alcohol explodes from the glass to reveal spicy, dense, powerful and completely classy black fruit flavors that just ooze extract as the finish is thick, concentrated and opulent. This is deep and wonderfully complex and while this too is very firmly structured, the tannins are finer than those of the Clos de Vougeot. To be sure, this is particular in style as it's anything but classic yet it's quite promising all the same.Issue: 1st Quarter, 2005

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.
