94-96The Wine Advocate

A very graceful, sophisticated bouquet with mineral-rich red and black fruit... The palate is fresh in the mouth with fine supple tannin, just a touch of spice box tincturing the red fruit (cranberry, raspberry and pomegranate)

92+ Stephen Tanzer

Alluring aromas of black cherry, menthol, licorice and crushed rock. Densely packed, ripe and penetrating, conveying strong medicinal reserve and a rather powerful spine... explosive, very long, palate-cleansing finish,

Dark berry fruit liqueur-like aromas that are liberally cut with exuberantly spicy and floral nuances...a lovely, indeed caressing mouth feel to the medium-bodied, sappy, generous and refined flavors..dusty and impeccably well-balanced


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

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.
