Professional Reviews For This Wine

Burghound | Rating: 88-90

(from 4 different parcels in Brochon) A touch of wood spice frames moderately more elegant and certainly more expressive earth, and slightly gamy nose featuring crushed red and black pinot fruit aromas plus a trace of minerality that continues onto the rich, sweet and full-bodied flavors that are detailed and finely textured. This is really quite nicely balanced and displays virtually none of the rusticity that the appellation typically does. Impressively good juice for its level and also highly recommended.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 89-90

A 2005 Cotes de Nuits-Villages offers compressed, concentrated bitter but ripe black fruit with hints of game and licorice, juicy refreshment for all of its density, and both meaty and mineral salt finishing notes. It is hard to imagine getting much more wine from this appellation.

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 88(+?)

($32-$40) Ruby-red. Ripe aromas of blackberry, smoked meat and licorice pastille. Juicy and vibrant, with rather powerful dark fruit flavors for the appellation. Offers impressive concentration and volume, not to mention very good definition. The sturdy, medicinal finish features substantial ripe tannins.

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.
