Burghound | Rating: 95A spicy, pure, cool and reserved nose blends highly complex aromas of dark currant, violet, lavender, earth and game, all of which is trimmed in soft wood nuances. There is once again an overt muscularity and unabashed power to the broad-shouldered and concentrated flavors that terminate in an austere, palate staining and strikingly persistent finish that is very firmly structured. This beauty is really quite well-balanced as the only nit is a very mild hint of warmth but like the Rugiens, it would be pointless to open a bottle before at least 10 years have gone by.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.
