    An attractively perfumed nose that is classic Nuits with earthy and slightly animale red berry fruit aromas that merge into precise, pure and admirably intense medium full flavors that do carry some backend rusticity but overall, this is more refined than usual while keeping all of its typical power and punch.

    Bocquenet's 2006 Nuits-St.-Georges Aux St.-Julien features subtly jam-like yet tart-edged black fruits with overtones of coconut, brown spices, and vanilla. Surprisingly plush for the vintage, this finishes effusively, with sappy intensity and just a faint hint of heat. I would be inclined to enjoy this over the next 4-5 years.

  • 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.
