International Wine Cellar | Rating: 90Medium red. Sappy, complex nose combines strawberry, raspberry, cherry, rose petal, spices and herbs. Supple and sweet on entry, then drier in the middle palate, with herb-tinged flavors of red berries and spices. Conveys an impression of lower alcohol and finishes with a fairly serious tannic structure. In fact, this is a moderate 12.8% alcohol, with no chaptalization. Seems more 2001 in style than 2004.Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: March/April 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.
