Professional Reviews For This Wine

Burghound | Rating: 92

As I have observed several times, Clos de Vougeot was particularly successful in 2006 and this example is in perfect keeping with that general tendency with an expressive, spicy and unusually open nose that offers up aromas of earth, red and dark berry fruit and hints of the sauvage that continue onto the ripe, intense and youthfully austere flavors that culminate with good power and length. Despite the obvious muscle, this is essentially a Clos de Vougeot of finesse as the tannins are really quite fine.

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.
