Burghound | Rating: 93A relatively expressive and airy if not especially refined nose features notes of red and black pinot fruit plus obvious and pungent earth aromas where this earthy character also suffuses the rich, deep and powerful flavors that possess excellent mid-palate concentration that almost render the firm tannins invisible. The overall character here is very Pommard and this will age for decades so buy this only with the fortitude to allow for a good long snooze in the cellar because it's going to need it.Author: Allen MeadowsIssue: 2nd 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.
