International Wine Cellar | Rating: 90Good deep red. Red cherry and raspberry lifted by a floral note on the nose. Suave on entry, then tight in the middle, even a bit clenched, but with very good precision and intensity. Following the Echezeaux, though, this comes across as drier and a bit rigid.Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: March/April 2008
Burghound | Rating: 90Very ripe dark berry fruit aromas, violets, animale, spice, warm earth and a hint of coffee merge into rich, intense and mouth coating flavors that possess a suave mouth feel yet again, the richness does not detract from the detail on the driving finish where the quality of the old vines really shows. An excellent villages and the best among this first rate group of villages wines.Author: Allen MeadowsIssue: 1st Quarter, 2008

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.
