Burghound | Rating: 89This is aromatically restrained, indeed backward and almost quiet, offering up only glimpses of earthy and vegetal/wild herb-infused red fruit aromas yet the flavors are generous and accessible, displaying a sweet, round and punchy finish that has a slight tannic edge to it. This is really very pure and very Nuits in basic character and should reward 6 years or so of cellar development.Drink Dates: 2010+Author: Allen MeadowsIssue: 1st Quarter, 2006

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.
