  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 88

    ($105) Full dark red. Spicy, floral aromas of dark cherry, plum, licorice and mint. Sweet and juicy but tightly wound, with a restrained sweetness and a medicinal reserve. More pliant than the Vougeot but still quite firm and cool for 2005. This has intensity but lacks real charm. The fine-grained tannins suggest that this will reward seven or eight years of cellaring.

    A 2005 Nuits-St.-Georges Les Murgers exhibited more of a cooked fruit (cherry, blackberry) impression than typical for this vintage, with lovely high-toned notes of ginger, cardamom, and pit fruit distillate. In the mouth, rich black fruits gain support rather than interference from an abundance of fine tannin, and the wine finishes with a touch of austerity but clear fruit character and impressive length. It might be a few years before one really knows what further complexities are lurking in this well-structured wine.

    A pungent combination of red and black pinot fruit and warm earth notes introduce rich, full and somber flavors that possess good power and solid structure on the beautifully long finish. This is a serious wine with a spicy character and buffered tannins that should carry this for 20 years.

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.
