    ($254) Medium red. Musky aromas of redcurrant, smoked meat, mocha and flinty minerality. Sweet and creamy but weightless, with fleshy but suave flavors of raspberry, minerals and underbrush. Finishes with noble tannins and lovely lingering perfume. A wonderfully soil-inflected wine that should be glorious by 2017 or so.

    ÿVery sweet and rich on the nose. Correct, with great spine, but still reticent. A bit step up from other flights with a certain amount of chew. Great balance and vibrancy. Long, subtle. Dry finish. Dried cherries flavour but no suggestion of dried fruit. Very persistent. Real energy there.

    An explosive and impressively broad nose combines the classic spiciness of a fine Clos de BŠze with a myriad of other nuances, including game, smoke, damp earth, red and blue berry fruit and touches of underbrush and a trace of wood toast that is also picked up on the rich, full and notably serious flavors that are both sweet and intense on the powerfully long finish that displays real size and weight. This is a big wine by the standards of the vintage and be prepared to let this beauty slumber for at least a decade, perhaps a bit more.

    Concentrated flavors of cherry, blackberry, licorice and mineral highlight this intense, refined red. It's integrated from start to finish, with fine tannins resonating on the finish. Puts it all together. Still needs a few years.

    Smoky black tea, rose petals, dark berries, and licorice waft seductively (and site-typically) from the glass of Clair 2006 Chambertin Clos De Beze. Seamlessly-rich and refined in tannins, this offers a gorgeous layering of flavors anchored in clean meatiness and suggestions of stoniness and crystalline minerality that carry no sense of austerity. While missing the remarkable dynamic of the Clos St.-Jacques, in its own way this supremely elegant, intriguingly-nuanced, and memorably persistent Pinot is a model for the vintage and of its great site's potential year in, year out. Plan to give it 3-4 years of rest before savoring it for the 6-8 that follow.

  • 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.
