International Wine Cellar | Rating: 93($179) Good deep red. Musky black cherry, raspberry, fresh herbs and sexy oak on the nose. Sweet, lush and creamy, with a combination of sappiness and roundness giving it great early appeal. In the fruit-driven style of this producer's 2005s, but more pliant and sweet than most of them.Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: March/April 2008
Wine Spectator | Rating: 90A beefy, concentrated version, with plum, licorice and leather flavors. Lacks some purity, with slightly muddled flavors, firm tannins and a touch of heat on the finish. 50 cases imported.Author: Bruce Sanderson

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.
