Wine Spectator | Rating: 96Dark and smoky, delivering black cherry, black currant, graphite and wet earth aromas and flavors. Powerful, yet reined in by the lively acidity. The tannins are refined and well-integrated. Excellent length. Best from 2022 through 2036. 25 cases imported.Author: Bruce Sanderson
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.
