    The 2017 Clos-Saint-Denis Grand Cru has a clean, precise bouquet that features black fruit and a touch of truffle, and manifests discreet floral scents with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, traces of orange sorbet and tart red cherries that fan out toward the sensual finish, which just needs a little more mineralité. There is a sense of nobility to this Grand Cru that I find very appealing.

    More evident wood stops short of masking the lovely spice and floral elements suffusing the fresh red berry fruit aromas. The supple, round and relatively pliant middle weight flavors possess outstanding complexity on the impressively long finish. This stylish effort is very classy, indeed it's an exercise in subtlety and grace.

  • 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, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay reign supreme. The best examples are capable of aging for 15 years or more, a rarity for these two varieties, making them highly valuable.
