International Wine Cellar | Rating: 89($74) Good deep red. Pure, nuanced, rather cool aromas of black cherry, licorice, minerals and flowers. The ripe but quite firm in the mouth, with raspberry and mineral flavors accented by a peppery note. Finishes with dusty, tight tannins that arrive late. This needs several years of bottle aging, or a vigorous decanting.Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: March/April 2007
Wine Spectator | Rating: 90This is marked by ripe fruit and a dense texture that serves as a backdrop for the cherry, licorice and mineral notes. Has a good sense of place, with a vibrant finish.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.
