International Wine Cellar | Rating: 89($82) Bright yellow. Aromas of yellow plum and honey. Plump, round and sweet, with more stuffing than the Garenne. The fruit-driven flavors of apricot, peach and mango are smooth and sweet but could use a bit more punch. Boillot, who prefers chardonnay with more mineral precision, says this wine could well have said California, Australia or Limoux on the label.Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: September/October 2007
Burghound | Rating: 90More discreet though not invisible wood frames clean, bright and pretty green apple and pear aromas that precede fresh and vibrant medium weight flavors that display a somewhat juicy and fruity character and while this is perhaps not quite as complex as one might like, there is a certain charm plus it has beautiful balance.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.
