Burghound | Rating: 91A pungent and expressive nose of white flower and honeysuckle that is ripe but stops short of being exotic gives way to rich, full, powerful and relatively vibrant flavors that are not as concentrated as the best here but still, there is impressive depth and refinement on the backward finish. This is not a great Bƒtard but I have the sense that at 11 years of age now, the vines are beginning to produce better raw material and that in a few years, we'll start to see some terrific things from this wine.Author: Allen MeadowsIssue: 3rd Quarter, 2007
Wine Spectator | Rating: 94Ripe and powerful, here's a complex, concentrated white from a great vintage. Butter, vanilla cream, peach and mineral flavors mingle with the lush texture, while the acidity keeps it balanced and fresh. And fresh describes the finish, where mineral and toast notes linger. 68 cases made.Author: Bruce Sanderson
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.
