  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 91

    ($130) Bright, dark red. Rather stern aromas of medicinal black cherry and licorice. Ripe, silky and deep, with impressive earthy sweetness but a distinctly serious attitude. Solidly structured but extremely primary today. Dense, broad and very long, with thoroughly ripe tannins. Offers impressive potential. (I tasted these wines, all special selections for North Berkeley Imports, in New York, as Raphet was preparing his 2005s for bottling when I was in Burgundy in November. There is also a separate old-vines bottling of Clos Vougeot, which I did not taste.) (North Berkeley Imports, Berkeley, CA)

  • Burghound | Rating: 91

    A deeper, riper and seemingly more serious earthy red fruit and warm earth nose precedes rich, full and admirably concentrated big-bodied flavors that possess a certain Vougeot-esque robustness underpinned by ample dry extract and the classic youthful austerity. This is very crafted in the Raphet style but with more power than usual.

  • Jean Raphet finally passed control of the domaine to his son Gerard in 2002, though his son had been tending the vineyards for over a decade. The wines from this property are remarkable and brilliant renditions of Pinot Noir. Equal parts caressing finesse, fruit purity and aromatic bliss, they have excellent track records at all levels. From the Bourgogne, to the mere cases production of the Grand Cru Clos de Beze, Raphet wines are consistently palate pleasing.
