International Wine Cellar | Rating: 91($90) Medium red. A touch of smoky reduction blows off to reveal high-pitched, perfumed aromas of raspberry, flowers, blood orange and earthy underbrush. Sappy, sweet and pliant, with ripe acids framing and freshening the middle palate. Strong red fruits and spices are seductively high-toned today, but this wine is still quite primary. Finishes with suave tannins and noteworthy length. This is virtually always an excellent cuveeAuthor: Stephen TanzerIssue: March/April 2010
Burghound | Rating: 91A densely fruited nose offers up aromas of raspberry, red pinot and an upper register hint of cranberry that precedes the fresh, rich and nicely concentrated medium-bodied flavors that possess lovely pure of expression as well as solid depth and length. There is a lovely underlying sense of harmony and overall, this is quite pretty.Author: Allen MeadowsIssue: 1st Quarter, 2009
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.
