    A shade deeper and more complex than the village label, this offers cherry, blackberry and raspberry aromas and flavors. Richly textured, with ample tannic support and length. 830 cases made.

    Notes of warm earth and underbrush add nuance to the mostly briar and black pinot fruit aromas that introduce supple, round yet admirably precise flavors that possess reasonably good depth of material if not great complexity, all wrapped in a delicious and sappy finish. Good but not special quality here.

    I really enjoyed this wine as a great value Burgundy. In terms of color, it had a deep ruby core and on the nose the aromas were pronounced with notes of spice and bramble (or underbrush), reminiscent of Rhone wines. On the nose I detected red fruits such as raspberry and currant. The palate matched the nose revealing clove, cranberry and earthy elements. This wine has medium plus acidity, soft tannins, and light body. This is a very good quality wine that could age another five to ten years and pair wonderfully with light meats or hard cheeses.

    This is the third 2005 vintage wine from this producer which I've tasted in as many weeks (filling the 1er Cru spot between the Village and Grand Cru offerings of theirs I've had recently and enjoyed immensely). Color is dark rose red. Nose is unexpectedly dark and brooding, but quite pleasing with its briar/bramble/underbrush qualities. Reminds me more of a Rhone varietal based wine than of Pinot. Lots of blue-black aggregate fruits - blackberry, raspberry, boysenberry, loganberry. Interestingly, this also has a bit of a high-end Barolo tar note and trailing hints of more typical Pinot-esq bright sour cherry and allspice. The palate does an amazing 180 on the nose - bright, clean, sprightly, and super fresh. The acidity is mouth watering and it compliments the bright raspberry fruit and allspice/clove finish.

When Claude Chevalier took control of the family cellars in 1994 the first thing he instituted was a new mindset. He began a renovation in the cellar and an emphasis that the wine is made first and finally in the vineyards. In 2000, Claude made a radical change - he hired the well know Greek oenologist, Kyrakos Kynigopoulos, a.k.a. "the vineyard magician."

Claude's wines reflect the four generations of expertise and meticulousness that has gone into the maintenance of his family vineyards. From the Domaine's total holding of 37 acres, Claude makes 14 village and 1er cru wines. Claude also presides over the Confederation of Burgundian appellations and vignerons.
