  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 88

    ($100-$131) Palish medium red. Musky, slightly autumnal aromas of raspberry, smoked meat and underbrush. Sappy, sweet and somewhat sauvage, with a strong game and leather quality. There's nothing green about the wine's acidity, and the tannins are sweeter than those of the village Gevrey.

    An expressive, high-toned and beautifully ripe cherry and raspberry-infused nose combines with seductively sweet, round and supple flavors that possess good mid-palate fat and a nice driving finish that offers particularly good vibrancy. As I noted in the introductory comments, this is as good a Groffier Hauts Doix as I can remember from barrel. In a word, lovely.

  • 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.
