Professional Reviews For This Wine


International Wine Cellar | Rating: 90-93

($94) Deep red. Noble, soil-inflected aromas of cherry, minerals and licorice; Vibrant, fine-grained flavors of red fruits, stone and licorice. Lovely ripe acids give this wine enticing inner-mouth aromatic character. Wears its 100% new oak gracefully. Finishes long and perfumed, with very fine tannins.

Burghound | Rating: 91

The once strong wood has largely if not completely been absorbed and frames captivating but reserved aromas of game, earth and cassis that merge seamlessly into sweet, rich, powerful and very long full-bodied flavors of real size and weight. This is punchy but not at all rustic or hard. In short, this is a terrific effort with exceptionally good complexity and a really lovely inner mouth sweetness plus it's built to age.

Very clear colour. Explosive floral fragrances. Still very primary. Very smooth, silky tannins. Great balance with mouth-filling sweetness. Very deep, complex flavors of black fruits. Explosive mid-palate intensity and great persistence. Probably just arriving at its peak, as this wine was still closed and hard two years ago. An excellent Corton.

About This Producer


The domaine was "officially" founded in 1999 when the Boisset family's 91 acres were united under one name. Their original vineyard holding, Les Evocelles, was purchased in 1964 by Jean-Claude Boisset. The family's 91 acres are in 30 appellations in the Cote d'Or, with the latest purchase being the 24-acre premier cru Blanc de Vougeot Monopole. Other vineyards of note include Bonnes Mares, Corton Charlemagne, and Clos de Vougeot. Pascal Marchand is the winemaker, and the purity of the Burgundian terroir is due to his diligence at preserving the natural farming and biodynamic techniques of generations past.

Wine Varietal: Pinot Noir


Notorious for its fickle growing patterns, Pinot Noir vines prefer long, cool growing conditions and tend to mutate easily, leaving behind numerous clones and inconsistent flavor profiles. Although it is one of the three major varieties used in Champagne production, Burgundy is the traditional home of Pinot Noir. The 30-mile stretch of hills known as the Cote d'Or is valued as the world's premier production area. Pinot Noir is planted all over the world. In the United States, Sonoma, the Russian River Valley, Carneros and the Willamette Valley produce top-notch wines from this variety. Other notable countries include New Zealand, Australia, and Chile. Typical descriptors for Pinot Noir include strawberry, raspberry, cherry, mushroom, and meaty notes.
