92James Suckling

Spicy, cedary and minty with raspberries and blueberries. Medium to full body, firm and silky tannins and a juicy finish. Smoke and tar at the end.

92Wine Enthusiast

Dried hayflower comes with a dollop of vanilla on this wine's subtle and almost ethereal nose. The palate has rounded, almost juicy ripeness but treads lightly, showing subtle extraction and pure, concentrated red cherry and tart berry.

89-91The Wine Advocate

Aromas of sweet grilled meats, spicy cassis, cherries and rich soil tones...medium to full-bodied, ample and impressively layered wine that includes some premier cru juice.

89-91Vinous / IWC

...offers good concentration on the nose, delivering plenty of red plum, raspberry and a touch of damson that bursts through with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannin, very fine acidity, silky-smooth texture and gentle grip on the rounded, wild-strawberry-infused finish. Delightful.

16.5Jancis Robinson

Intense but reserved dark-red fruits with perhaps a touch of sweet oak spice to counterbalance the darker fruit. Chewy finish.


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

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, AOC (AC)

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.
