International Wine Cellar | Rating: 90($130) Good full red. Superripe aromas of musky strawberry, plum, tar and chocolate, with a medicinal note of cough syrup. Broad, large-scaled and sweet but youthfully brooding, with slightly sullen flavors of maraschino cherry, chocolate and tar. This very young and bound-up wine shows a liqueur-like ripeness and finishes with a fine dusting of tannins. Still stunned by the bottling.Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: March/April 2007
Burghound | Rating: 92An almost surprisingly open and accessible aromatic profile of ripe dark berry and black cherry fruit aromas with plenty of Gevrey character merge into rich, full and very generous sweet and textured medium full-bodied flavors that possess plenty of punch. While presently very approachable, there is a firm core of buried tannins that will probably cause this to close up once in bottle.Drink Dates: 2013+Author: Allen MeadowsIssue: 1st Quarter, 2008

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, and reign supreme. The best examples are capable of aging for 15 years or more, a rarity for these two varieties, making them highly valuable.
