International Wine Cellar | Rating: 93-97

(just two barrels made) Dark red-ruby. Brooding, deeply pitched aromas of black raspberry, blackberry and chocolate, with a saline character that derives from the rocky soil. Rich, sappy, dense and powerful; this saturates the entire palate, but strong acids and underlying minerality give it great detail and lift. Almost shockingly fresh and primary on the extremely persistent aftertaste. Like the Amoureuses, this was vinified entirely with whole clusters.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 95-97

Both this year's Bonnes Mares and the Jadot 2005 Musigny were fermented entirely with whole clusters. The latter exhibits a remarkable nose of black raspberry, kirsch, vanilla, incense, jasmin, as well as diverse mysterious forest floor and scintillating floral eminences. Incredibly rich and mouth-coating, it delivers a fabulously long finish of distilled fruit intensity and velvety richness, yet with face-slapping freshness and palpable chalkiness. Brown spices, flowers, and mineral nuances ride a crest of pure, sweet, positively viscous fruit, completely burying the wine's tannins. Don't get your hopes up: only around 50 cases of this will be bottled.

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.
