Jancis Robinson | Rating: 15Cask sample. Next to Bonnes Mares. On red clay. Very rich and sweet on the nose and then distinctly drying on the end. A bit much.Author: Jancis Robinson
Burghound | Rating: 93Here the expressive nose is notably riper with its liqueur-like aromas of various dark berries, spice and warm earth. There is excellent volume and concentration to the tautly muscular and powerful flavors that possess fine punch to the beautifully well-balanced and persistent finish. This is a classic Sentiers of solid size and weight and as usual borrows more from Morey than Chambolle.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.
