Burghound | Rating: 92A more reserved spicy and earthy nose but there is more depth to the dense fruit black berry and cassis suffused nose that is also quite delicious with a generous but firm flavor profile that culminates in a muscled but not rustic or aggressive finish of substantial length. High quality here and recommended.Author: Allen MeadowsIssue: 1st Quarter, 2008
Wine Spectator | Rating: 89Not showing much more than structure right now, but there's a sweetness midpalate, and the structure is vibrant. Just a tad dry on the finish, as much from wood as from grape tannins. Be patient. Best from 2013 through 2022. 75 cases imported.Author: Bruce Sanderson
Jancis Robinson | Rating: 17Smudgy, lively, quite dry. Grating tannins, very exciting. Taffeta texture. Long. Refreshing.Author: Jancis RobinsonIssue: 08/13/2007
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.
