Burghound | Rating: 91An earthy yet elegant and high-toned red pinot fruit nose highlights rich, supple and mineral-driven medium full flavors that are nicely concentrated, pure and impeccably well balanced on the complex and persistent finish. This is quite fine, indeed unusually fine as it matches the Chapelle in this regard yet offers a bit more depth and weight.Author: Allen MeadowsIssue: 1st Quarter, 2007

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.
