Wine Spectator | Rating: 95A flashy, flamboyant style, boasting charry oak and pure black cherry, blackberry and violet flavors. This should come together nicely in a few years, once the oak is absorbed. Offers a fine, fresh, long finish, with a hint of earth. Best from 2023 through 2035. 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.
