International Wine Cellar | Rating: 92($323) Bright, dark red. Floral perfume, licorice pastille, smoked meat and sweet oak on the nose. Big, rich and deep, with very ripe fruit and smoked meat flavors showing a touch of youthful reduction. This impressively chewy, broad wine finishes with excellent length and almost Rhone-like ripeness.Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: March/April 2009
Burghound | Rating: 91A ripe, pretty and expressive liqueur of raspberry and red pinot fruit nose complements the delicious, powerful and intense full-bodied flavors that possess excellent mid-palate concentration and a serious and sleekly muscled finish that displays real drive and finishing punch. This is a big but not inelegant wine with excellent development potential though because of the mid-palate sappiness, it actually is approachable now though how long it will stay this way before the tannins become more prominent is not clear.Author: Allen MeadowsIssue: 1st Quarter, 2009
Wine Advocate | Rating: 92From vines planted in 1902, Perrot-Minot's four barrels' worth of 2006 Nuits-St.-Georges La Richemone Vieilles Vignes CuvAce Ultra offers palate-staining intensity of |ultra-|ripe black fruits, smoked meats, and soy. Surprisingly, this is brighter and than the two bottlings from the Combe d'Orveaux, although like the |ultra| rendition of that site, it's almost inscrutably dense and emphasizes the bitter bite of its constituent berries. The finish here gives you a lot to chew on both tactilely and mentally, and I don't doubt that the wine will be worth following for more than a decade.Author: David Schildknecht
Wine Spectator | Rating: 94Wild, smoky aromas are followed by cassis, violet, bilberry and vanilla flavors. Ripe and silky, yet with a dense structure. There's terrific harmony and expression already, yet the long, sweet finish shows its ultimate potential. Give this time to absorb the oak. Best from 2012 through 2025. 50 cases made.Author: Bruce Sanderson
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.
