International Wine Cellar | Rating: 89($69; this cuvee was vinified with all whole clusters, the exception here in 2004) Good full medium red. Explosive aromas of briary red berries, tobacco, underbrush and spices. Fat and sweet but with lovely lift in the mouth; shows much more dynamism than the Clos de l'Arlot. Dry in the style of the vintage but there's more flesh here and the wine is already approachable. Leriche notes that the estate harvested late in 2004, and bottled wines with 13% alcohol (13.3% for the Suchots) without chaptalization.Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: March/April 2007
Burghound | Rating: 89The very fresh high-toned red berry fruit nose also displays more than a hint of floral and herbal nuances with wonderfully complex, intense and very pure flavors that possess excellent balance. The finish is long, understated and precise with ample punch and a hint of animale.Author: Allen MeadowsIssue: 1st Quarter, 2007
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.
