93Wine Spectator

An alluring expression of pure cherry, strawberry and currant fruit, plus floral and spice notes, highlights this elegant red.

93Vinous / IWC

...plenty of brambly red fruit on the nose, interlaced with cold tea and scorched earth aromas. Fine delineation here. The palate is medium-bodied and flirts with over-ripeness on the kirsch infused opening, though reins everything in towards the finish with an attractive saline aftertaste.

93James Suckling

Very vivid and aromatic with perfume and floral character. Sliced strawberries and lemons. Medium to full body, firm and silky tannins and delicious aftertastes of fruit, hazelnut and light chocolate.

92+ The Wine Advocate

Offering up aromas of raspberries, cherries, dried flowers and citrus rind, it's medium to full-bodied, ample and fleshy, with a broad, richly textured attack, satiny but abundant structuring tannins and juicy acids, concluding with a long finish...

16.5+ Jancis Robinson

Smells sweet and generously fruited. More savoury than I expected on the palate, finely textured. An almost sour freshness on the finish.


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

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.
