International Wine Cellar | Rating: 90($115) Deep ruby-red. Superripe aromas of candied black cherry, boysenberry, plum and chocolate; distinct hints of surmaturite Fat, high-toned and hugely rich for a 2004 (from late-picked fruit?), and already expressive today. Dense dark fruit flavors are carrying a load of sweet, nutty oak. Finishes very broad and full, with a substantial but fine dusting of tannins. Fans of sheer size will no doubt prize this one more than I did.Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: March/April 2007
Wine Spectator | Rating: 92Sweet spice and coconut aromas introduce this suave, powerful red, which exhibits fresh black cherry, green olive and mineral flavors, with a long, spicy finish. Yet requires time to absorb the tannins. 24 cases made.Author: Bruce Sanderson

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.
