International Wine Cellar | Rating: 89Good full red. Red fruits and oak on the slightly diffuse nose. Solid and easygoing on the palate, with an element of minerality giving the palate more definition than the nose. This shows good life and length.Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: March/April 2006
Burghound | Rating: 91Surprisingly, this less elegant as one of the usual hallmarks of Bel Air is the perfumed and high-toned fruit but here the nose is relatively somber, intense and earthy that precedes nicely concentrated medium full flavors that possess good depth and solid length. However, it's the complexity that ultimately elevates this to the next level and I very much like the understated character.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.
