89-91The Wine Advocate

Deep, concentrated, and exhibits a thick, yet firm, personality. Earth, chalk, and minerals are intermingled with this masculine wine’s powerful blackberry fruit. Medium-bodied...armed with copious quantities of ripe tannin.

89-91Vinous / IWC

Pure, lively aromas of dark berries, minerals and mint. Tightly wound and pure, with blackberry and mineral flavors lifted by pungent spice character. Firmly structured wine, finishing with very good grip and persistence.

Very ripe yet retains an attractive freshness to the red pinot fruit aromas merging into round, supple, remarkably intense flavors underpinned by buried but firm tannins and excellent length. There is a lovely mineral character


France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Nuits Villages, Chambolle-Musigny, Les Fuees

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.


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.
