RATINGS

93The Wine Advocate

...deep bouquet of Morello cherries, dark berries, warm spices and licorice. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, lavish and gourmand, with an enveloping attack, a voluminous core of fruit and largely concealed structuring tannins.

92-94Vinous / IWC

...very sensual bouquet of plush red fruit that becomes darker with aeration, touches of pressed iris and lavender emerging with time. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin...supremely well focused, delivering a lot of substance and grip on the finish while maintaining freshness... Very, very impressive.

17Jancis Robinson

Dark-red fruit and so elegant on the nose, with a slight floral note but also a stony mineral edge...great length. A refined beauty and juicy on the finish.

REGION

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

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.

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.
