RATINGS

93The Wine Advocate

Sweet, sensual and totally beguiling, Dark cherries, herbs, violets and white flowers... striking wine. An underpinning of minerality accentuates the energy of the fruit and the wine’s overall persistence.

90Wine Spectator

This is firm, with a well-defined center of cherry, raspberry and mineral flavors. Stays trim and toned, picking up spice accents on the lingering finish.

90Stephen Tanzer

Good medium red. Musky soil tones and complex peppery spices on the nose and palate. More fleshy but less open than the Chambolle villages, but showing superb energy for this bottling. Finishes lush and long, with harmonious acidity.

90Burghound.com

Here the nose is a fresh mix of crushed herbs and distinctly earthy red berry fruit aromas that precede middle weight flavors that are delicious, round and detailed with good verve and punch on the supple finish that is solidly complex and quite persistent.

REGION

France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Nuits, Morey-St.-Denis, La Bussiere

Côte de Nuits is the northern part of the Côte d’Or and it includes the most famous vineyards and wine communes in the world. There are more Grand Cru appellations in the Côte de Nuits than anywhere else in Burgundy. Of the fourteen communes, or villages in the Côte de Nuits, six produce Grand Cru wines. They are Gevrey-Chambertin, Morey-St.-Denis, Chambolle-Musigny, Vougeot, Flagey-Échezeaux and Vosne-Romanee. Some of the vineyards within the Côte de Nuits are tiny, which adds to their prestige. The fabled Grand Cru vineyard La Romanee is barely two square acres. Altogether there are twenty-four Grand Cru vineyards. The region takes its name from the village of Nuits-Saint-Georges. Côtes de Nuits produces mostly reds from Pinot Noir, and the wines have been in demand for centuries. During the 18th century King Louis XIV’s physician recommended that for his health the king only drink wines from Nuits-Saint-Georges. Like most of Burgundy, the soils of the Côte de Nuit can vary greatly from one vineyard to another, though most are a base soil of limestone mixed with clay, gravel and sand.

TYPE

Red Wine, Pinot Noir, 1er (Premier) Cru

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
