  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 93

    ($343) Deep red-ruby. Lovely precision to the aromas of black cherry, blueberry, licorice, minerals and spicy oak. Juicy, penetrating and sweet, with sharply delineated flavors of spicy dark berries and minerals. Here the tannins are sweet and noble, and the finish boasts lovely length and sap. Seems much riper than the 2006, but not at all overripe.

  • 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, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay reign supreme. The best examples are capable of aging for 15 years or more, a rarity for these two varieties, making them highly valuable.
