Burghound | Rating: 88A very perfumed and engaging nose of floral aromas and underlying iodine notes highlight the delicious, round, detailed and sappy flavors underpinned by snappy acidity and fine length. Despite the firm acidity, this is relatively forward and should drink well early.Author: Allen MeadowsIssue: 4th Quarter, 2006
International Wine Cellar | Rating: 87Reticent nose hints at lemon and fresh herbs. Suppler and softer than the village wine, with fruit-drivenflavors of pineapple, lemon and mint, along with a whiff of banana. On the lean side but more persistent on the aftertaste than the village example.Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: July/August 2005
Wine Advocate | Rating: 86Spiced almonds are found in the aromatics of the broad, silky-textured 2004 Chablis Montmains. A plump, light to medium-bodied wine, it reveals appealing ripe pear as well as apple flavors in its slightly tight personality. It should be drunk over the next 1-2 years.Author: Pierre Rovani
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.
