    As one would reasonably expect, this is the most reserved wine in the range with its reluctant nose of red cherry and blue berry fruit aromas and warm earth notes that precede the tight, intense and firm medium full flavors that are linear, precise and vibrant on the intensely mineral-infused finish. This will require more time to reach its peak though as Bonnes Mares goes, this is still crafted in a more forward style. There is firmer acidity here that confers a more obvious sense of structure to the finish.

    Sweet and rather oaky. But there is lots of life here. Just not much refinement. Bit of a workhorse. Lots of grunt, and quite a bit of slightly rustic tannin on the finish.

    Color is a dark Pinot. Nose is very light, and currently has yet to open and show itself. subtle blueberry fruit and cinnamon spice. The palate off the bat is extremely transparent. A subtle yet precise and complex mouthfeel, with the mid-palate showing candied cherry fruit and minerals. Finesse and perfumed while also remaining spicy and full of earth. A true Burgundy.

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.
