International Wine Cellar | Rating: 94(a blend of Petite Chapelle, Cherbaudes, Bel-Air and Champonnets): Bright medium red. High-pitched aromas of raspberry, blood orange, rose petal and spicy oak. At once sweet and velvety on the palate, with a wonderfully spherical shape and lovely framing energy. Delivers an uncanny combination of sucrosite and inner-mouth tension. The piquant, very long finish leaves the taste buds humming. This will already be delicious in a couple years but will probably be even better with seven or eight years of cellaring.Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: January/February 2014
Burghound | Rating: 91There is enough reduction on the slightly woody nose to suggest that a good decanting is in order if you're tempted to try a bottle of this young. There is however good freshness and vitality to the mineral-inflected, concentrated and ripe middle weight flavors that possess a slightly rustic but long finish where a trace of wood resurfaces.Author: Allen Meadows

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.
