Vinous | Rating: 92The 2015 Clos St. Denis is quite pretty. Sweet floral notes hover over a core of delicate, understarted fruit. This is another wine that comes across as a bit closed and in need of racking. Rose petal, lavender and spice nuances add the closing shades of complexity. Charles van Canneyt told me he planned to bottle the Clos St. Denis, along with some of his other wines, on the earlier side in order to preserve as much fruit and overall freshness as possible.Drink Dates: 2023 - 2035Author: Antonio GalloniIssue: Jun 2017
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.
