International Wine Cellar | Rating: 89($75) Medium red. Subtle aromas of plum, redcurrant, spices and iron. Fat and broad, with lovely sweet fruit and plenty of volume. Finishes with fairly fine tannins and good definition and lift.Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: March/April 2006
Rating: 92Powerful aromas of black cherries burst from the glass of the 2003 Pommard Pezerolles (red). This medium-bodied wine is concentrated, deep, and intense. Blueberries, blackberries, boysenberries, and notes of tar can be found in its impressive personality. In addition, its long finish unveils more layers of sweet black fruits that envelop loads of ripe tannin.Author: Pierre Rovani
Rating: 92Ripe, sporting plenty of black fruit--black cherry, blackberry--but also violet aromas and flavors. It's elegant and well-balanced, with density but also harmony. Lingering finish.Author: Bruce Sanderson
Rating: 90A toasty black berry and cherry fruit nose leads to exceptionally ripe, rich, round and sweet, indeed opulent and exotic flavors that remain quite fine on the mouth coating and persistent finish. If this gains in complexity with bottle age, it could exceed my range.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.
