    From the highest portion of that cru, Perrot-Minot's 2006 Charmes-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes features super-ripe black raspberry and cassis mingled with tobacco, iron filings, and brown spices. An enormously sappy, palate-staining primary fruit concentration on the palate is underlain by more obvious tannin than the corresponding Chapelle. This finishes with redoubtable length by clamping down on the palate with tenacious, toothy grip. Here is one example of this cru that, while formidable, fails to literally live up to its name. Perrot-Minot points out that the parcel is right in front of the sign that says |here commences the Chambertin,| and this Charmes seems to have stepped across the line and into the martial, Napoleonic role sometimes ascribed to the wine of its northern neighbor. I would give it at least 3-4 years before revisiting, and it will certainly be long-lived.

    Lush, with texture and cherry and spice flavors that envelop the palate. The flavors are persistent, with hints of vegetal and spice notes in turn. The structure is well-integrated, and this has class and length.

    Red-ruby. Reticent aromas of redcurrant, dried flowers, iron, smoke, rocks and gingery spice. Bright and sappy on the palate, with insidious sweetness and intensity to its dark fruit flavors. Very stylish wine, finishing pure, spicy and long, with firm but very fine tannins.

  • 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.
