International Wine Cellar | Rating: 90($91) Good medium red. Brambly raspberry and a whiff of game on the nose. Suave on entry, then rather tightly wound, with red berry flavors framed by a spine of acidity. Finishes long and tangy, with substantial dusty tannins. Not especially expansive, but spicy and pure for the year.Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: March/April 2005
Rating: 90Sweet spice, wild cherry and berry aromas and flavors mark this supple, almost delicate red. It has plenty of tannins and structure, yet seems lighter on its feet. The tannins are just a little dry on the finish.Author: Bruce Sanderson
Rating: 91An expressive and explosive nose of ripe cassis, plum and spice leads to highly complex, sweet, elegant and classy flavors that are naturally sweet and utterly delicious. This is structured but the tannins are well integrated and this possesses excellent balance, all culminating in a dusty, very firm finish.Issue: 2nd 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.
