International Wine Cellar | Rating: 89($65) Medium red. Aromas of meat and smoke. Suave and layered if a bit less vibrant today than the Caillerets. Finishes firm, peppery and persistent. With aeration, this showed a subtle sweetness and growing spice character. In fact, this has a delicacy for 2003.Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: March/April 2006
Wine Advocate | Rating: 90Cookie dough drenched in red cherries come to mind when dipping oneƒA?A?s nose in the glass of the 2003 Volnay Fremiets (red). Lush, medium-bodied, and broad, this wine coats the tasterƒA?A?s palate with oodles of sweet red fruits and rose petals. Armed with gorgeous purity, depth, and length, it is slightly hampered by the strictness of its finish.Author: Pierre Rovani
Rating: 91There is also a touch of wood but here it is manifested in terms of spice rather than toast, framing elegant, pure and airy red pinot fruit aromas and mineral-driven, punchy and firm middle weight flavors of unusually good precision in the context of the vintage and a delicious, persistence and palate staining finish. This is a lovely if not profound effort and I quite like the style.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.
