International Wine Cellar | Rating: 94Good bright medium red. A coulis of red fruits on the nose, complicated by notes of menthol, licorice and chocolatey torrefaction; a bit more medicinal than mineral today. At once velvety-sweet and powerful; very large-scaled and chewy for this wine. Sound acidity gives shape and grip to the flavors and serious mouthdusting tannins call for a solid decade of cellaring. Very different in style from the more minerally, perfumed 2010, but these two wines track their vintages accurately.Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: March/April 2012
Wine Advocate | Rating: 94The 2009 Nuits St. Georges Les St. Georges reveals gorgeous delineation to balance its rich, intense fruit. From a structural standpoint it is the most inward and reticent of the 2009s I tasted from bottle. There is plenty to admire here, including a textured finish that is incredibly appealingAuthor: Antonio Galloni
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.
