    ($190-$242; 13.7% alcohol, the highest of these 2004s) Good full red. Nuanced nose melds dark cherry, meat, licorice, faded rose and earth. Silky-sweet and thick for the vintage, with lovely mineral cut to the raspberry and rose petal flavors. Finishes long, subtle and stony, with a captivating juicy character. But this firmly structured wine is quite youthfully closed, even a bit tough, today and its substantial dusty tannins call for a good six to eight years of bottle aging.

    The most complete wine here with a spicy, earthy, gamy and gorgeously elegant nose of musky red fruit aromas that carry distinct notes of underbrush that continue onto the rich, sweet and mouth coating flavors that explode on the strikingly long finish. This is a classy thoroughbred of a wine with superb complexity, impeccable balance and huge length. Be prepared to wait though as it will need time.

    Nice bright full red color. The nose is among the best of Burgundy - berries, flowery scents, minerality, even a hint of game meat. All the scents on the nose are reflected on the palate and combined very elegantly. Long floral, minerally finish - great now, probably even better in 5-7 years.

With his son Serge, Robert Groffier creates spectacular Pinot Noirs that are the powerful benchmarks of the respective communes. The Amoureuses, with its succulent fruit, is a kaleidoscope of aromatics and flavorsl. The Clos de Beze is an effort unto itself and has a mouth-coating, sweet earthy, gamy, bramble quality that is elegant and classy. The Sentiers and Haut Doix Chambolles offer classic, high-toned red berry and cherry elements that tend toward a bit more elegance and herb in the former and supple, round vibrancy in the latter.

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, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay reign supreme. The best examples are capable of aging for 15 years or more, a rarity for these two varieties, making them highly valuable.
