94James Suckling

Lovely forest-berry and black-cherry nose that is already quite open. Interesting tough of clove. Excellent structure, the tannins interlocking very nicely with the medium to full body and the generous fruit.

92-94Vinous / IWC

...delineated bouquet of blackberry, raspberry and light iris flower aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with fine precision, quite minerally and showing much more precision...right amount of salinity on the finish.

91-93+ The Wine Advocate

...lovely, mingling aromas of raspberries with hints of orange rind, spices and rose petals. Medium to full-bodied, layered and concentrated, it's bright and lively, with ultra-refined tannins and a long, perfumed finish.

17.5Jancis Robinson

...spread of subtle fruit across the palate is stunning! Velvety texture... Long and rich 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.
