Professional Reviews For This Wine


Burghound | Rating: 92

An equally fresh if perhaps not quite as ripe nose of red fruit and mineral-infused aromas of surpassing complexity introduce delicious, intense and slightly firmer medium full flavors that culminate in a subtly persistent finish. This is refined and exceptionally pure and while it is on the lighter side, the focus, detail and precision is extremely impressive. Like the Ruchottes, this trades on elegance and refinement yet there is no lack of flavor authority despite the absence of raw size and weight.

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 91(+?)

Medium cherry-red. Perfumed, precise nose shows a mineral pungency to go with the red cherry, raspberry and spice aromas. Sweet, juicy and tightly wound, with more obvious acidity and oak influence than the foregoing samples. This is very suave and subtle-exactly the kind of wine that's overlooked in competitive tastings. Finishes with restrained sweetness and sneaky persistence, with suggestions of vanilla and caramel. This very refined, vibrant wine really calls for five or six years of patience.

Not especially deep ruby. Complex nose with some jewel-fruit excitement. Sweet, spicy and with no awkward corners. Thoroughly well-knitted and balanced, but with quite prominent acidity still. Rather a racy wine but it should have quite an exciting life ahead of it. Lots of electricity!

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.
