Burghound | Rating: 92Again, moderate reduction renders the nose difficult to evaluate but as is usually the case chez Germain, the flavors are bigger, richer and more powerful with a natural sweetness on the punchy and admirably pure backend that displays excellent cut and verve. I really like the energy and sappy texture here.Author: Allen MeadowsIssue: 3rd Quarter, 2007
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.
