International Wine Cellar | Rating: 90($138) Bright yellow. Enticing, perfumed aromas of ripe nectarine and apple blossom. Juicy, firm and quite dry, with nuanced flavors of peach, nectarine, spices and minerals. Finishes fine and minerally, with a lovely floral perfume.Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: September/October 2007
Jancis Robinson | Rating: 17Broad, sweet, rich and carhming. Very very easy and already showing well. Dancing, not especially concentrated but very charming indeed.Author: Jancis RobinsonIssue: 39271
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.
