Professional Reviews For This Wine


Burghound | Rating: 91-94

Like the Les Cras, this is also surprising with unusually elegant and nuanced aromas of spicy black, blue and violet notes plus ample warm earth and game hints and even more surprisingly is how refined, pure and classy the flavors are and while there is certainly muscle and power here, it's sleek and focused rather than robust and massive though to be clear, it's clearly very firmly structured. I very much like this and it's worth a look for those of you with the discipline to be patient.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 91

A light oxidation in aroma, yet on the palate, this is fresh, youthful and full of pure cherry flavors. Heady and powerful, with a monolithic feel now. Ripe tannins.

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.
