RATINGS

94Wine Spectator

Lush and vibrant, exuding cherry and blueberry flavors, this ripe red is inviting yet deceptive in terms of structure.

93James Suckling

...very impressive array of raspberries and red cherries... Very fresh. The palate has terrific depth and detail, saturated plush fruits. A long red-cherry finish.

92The Wine Advocate

...very black-fruity bouquet of crushed cassis, red cherry, caramelized orange, asphalt and cedary new oak. On the palate, the wine is concentrated, intense and full-bodied, with sappy acidity and considerable length, its fine-grained tannins asserting themselves on the firm, grippy finish.

90+ Vinous / IWC

The palate is medium-bodied with quite bold and grippy tannin that lends it volume and mass.

16.5+ Jancis Robinson

Vibrant, raw rhubarb and red bramble fruit, plus a little reductive character giving some rubbery aroma. Loads of violet and sweet spice – really outgoing.

REGION

France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Beaune, Beaune, Les Greves

Les Greves is a 75-acre Premier Cru vineyard in the central part of the Beaune appellation, in Burgundy's Cote de Beaune. Though Beaune has no Grand Cru vineyards, it has 44 vineyards that are either partly or completely Premier Cru. Clive Coates has written that in the central section of the Beaune appellation is “where you will find the finest examples of premier cru in Beaune.”

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.
