International Wine Cellar | Rating: 89($119) Good full deep red. Musky dark raspberry and a whiff of smoked meat on the nose. Rich, dense and supple, with berry fruit complicated by leather and game. A fairly wild wine in this 2005 collection, with its fruit currently in the background. Finishes with substantial, broad tannins that call for five years of aging. Today I don't find the perfume displayed a year ago by a barrel sample, but this wine may be going through an awkward stage.Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: March/April 2008
Jancis Robinson | Rating: 17Dense, true, lively nose. Full of frank fruit and no artifice. A very good whole that's well balanced and constituted. Good fruit/tannin/acid balance.Author: Jancis RobinsonIssue: 01/17/2007

Wine Spectator | Rating: 91Rich, full and powerful, with black cherry, mineral and earth notes allied to a vibrant structure. It's sweet at the center, then the tannins take over. But the lasting impression is balance.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.
