Rating: 93An exuberant, expressive and highly complex nose of wood and natural spice, ripe plum, black pinot fruit and warm earth leads to exceptionally rich, round, classy and refined medium full flavors underpinned by obvious muscle, ripe but firm tannins and huge length. This presently possesses the best balance of any of these '03s and this too could surprise to the upside as the dry extract here is incredible.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.
