Burghound | Rating: 94A ripe yet noticeably reserved and cool nose offers up notes of raspberry, cherry and stone hints. There is good richness to the detailed, intense and vibrant big-bodied flavors that display excellent delineation on the overtly austere, mouth coating and impressively complex finish. This is still very tight and will require plenty of bottle age to shed the considerable tannins though it should be well worth the wait.Author: Allen Meadows
Rating: 94The 2009 Chambertin flows across the palate with explosive yet silky layers of fruit. The wine continues to build impressively, showing the radiant personality of the vintage. Everything is in the perfect place in this sublime Burgundy. Sweet inner fragrance lingers on the eternal finish.Author: 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.
