International Wine Cellar | Rating: 93($80) Pure aromas of lime and wet stone. A penetrating, powerful mineral bath on the palate, offering much more classic stony character than the estate's young 2005. Densely packed, gripping and very long.Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: September/October 2006
Burghound | Rating: 93Much more obvious wood influence is present here with oak spice and vanilla hints that presently detract mildly from the otherwise ultra pure and perfumed white flower and spiced pear aromas that complement the sweet, stony and detailed middle weight flavors that ooze class and refinement on the finish that is displaying great length and budding complexity.Author: Allen MeadowsIssue: 3rd Quarter, 2006
Self | Rating:Stony, correct and fresh but marred by new oak that blunts the fruit and clips the finish.Author: darvid
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.
