94+ Vinous / IWC

Floral and lifted on the outset...remarkable energy through the mid-palate and finish, with gorgeous density and plenty of punch.

92-94The Wine Advocate

...palate is medium-bodied with a succulent opening before the tannins kick in, rendering the finish more foursquare and structure. Good depth here with fine persistency...

91-93Stephen Tanzer

Very ripe aromas of raspberry and strawberry complicated by a hint of gibier and a note of sexy woodsmoke... Complex notes of spices, licorice, chocolate, violet and earth are given shape by decent acidity and broad, serious, ripe tannins.

16.5Jancis Robinson

Dark fruited but softened by a slight creaminess. Generous, firm, very smooth...


France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Nuits Villages, Gevrey-Chambertin, Les Cazetiers

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.
