    (from ten-year-old vines) Good deep red. Enticing aromas of black cherry, black raspberry, herbs and mint. Supple and smooth but distinctly dry in style, even tough. With modest stuffing, the tannins seem rather pronounced today.

    A hint of sweet sawdust from the oak leads into a pure cherry note. It's chunky today and monolithic, but has concentration and firm tannins on the finish. Needs time.

    Among the wines tasted from this collection that were still in barrel, a 2005 Chambolle-Musigny Les Plantes - from relatively young vines and possessed of healthy but relatively light color - offers aromas of cherry, cherry pit, and sassafras, comes onto the palate with bright, pure fruit, and finishes with hints of chalk and prominent but relatively fine-grained tannin. Christophe Vial has move here from de Montille to become the cellarmaster, but oenologist Claire Forestier was responsible for these 2005s. I hope I shall prove to have hit them on a bad day. But abstracting from possible (in some instances obvious) effects of having just been racked to tank and sulfured in preparation for bottling, I found many of these wines lacking in striking personalities or grip. Some evinced toasty hints of barrel despite the percentage of new wood being low (only rising above 20-30% in the case of Chambertin) suggesting that they might be a bit |underwined.|

    This too is ultra elegant with upper register aromas that combine both red and black pinot fruit notes and hints of underbrush that complement the round, rich, supple and forward flavors that offer a bit more concentration and depth but overall, this is only marginally better than the villages though it is more structured.

    Slow rolling this one, 3 hours open, and an hour in the glass, the aromas begin to build from a tightly bound bundle of smoky cherry, spice, and leather. Minerality, acidity, pepper, and energy release with effort. Bright, medium bodied, nice length, mouth-watering finish. The fruit is in a supporting actor role for now. Hold for another 3-5 years and see whether this promising wine can push through.

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.
