RATINGS

91Vinous / IWC

...airy, well-defined bouquet of black currant, briar, crushed rock and light iris petal aromas, compact but nicely focused. The palate is medium-bodied with grippy tannins and quite succulent in the mouth, delivering licorice-tinged black fruit and a very harmonious, lightly spiced finish that lingers in the mouth. Very promising.

90+ -92+ The Wine Advocate

...lovely bouquet of cassis and plums, complemented by top notes of woodsmoke and violets. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, supple and fleshy, with a bright spine of acidity and a fragrant, precise finish.

17Jancis Robinson

Juicy, sweet/sour ripe fruit and freshness. Chewy and full of fruit and avoiding over-ripeness. Deep and long.

REGION

France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Nuits Villages, Vougeot, Les Petits Vougeots

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.
