International Wine Cellar | Rating: 89Good deep red. Red cherry, flowers and brown spices on the nose. Juicy, leanish and youthfully tight, with a slightly herbal character but very good intensity and precision of flavor.Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: March/April 2008
Burghound | Rating: 89This is not more aromatically complex than the straight Morey villages though it does possess finer tannins on the rich, delicious and sappy flavors with the same excellent depth and length. Again, a high quality villages that is worth your consideration plus it should repay 5 to 7 years of aging.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.
