  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 92

    ($68-$90) Bright red-ruby. Brooding aromas of red fruits, mocha, smoke and rose petal, with a darker blackberry note emerging with aeration. Chewy and rich in extract but light on its feet, with a note of smoky reduction to its flavors of strawberry liqueur, mocha and spices. This will need time to absorb its juicy acidity and substantial dusty tannins but has the depth and personality for a graceful evolution in bottle. Give this one five 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.
