  • Burghound | Rating: 90

    A more reserved and more deeply pitched nose of dark berry fruit, briar and underbrush combines with rich if moderately austere flavors that are intense and structured and clearly built to age. While not exactly severe, this is sufficiently backward that it will require 5 to 8 years in bottle to really round out and as such, will run counter to the '05 tendency to be accessible at this stage.

    Good red-ruby color. Black cherry on the nose and palate. A bit severe following the bottling, but this has good fruit and balance and the tannins are supple.

    There's an animal component in this young red, with pure wild cherry and berry flavors. Has a tough, tannic structure and a mineral finish.

  • 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.
