91-93Stephen Tanzer

Vibrant aromas and flavors of blackberry, violet, licorice pastille, bitter chocolate and wild mint. Boasts compelling sweetness and texture, not to mention inner-mouth tension. Finishes with surprisingly sweet tannins and distinct minerality.

...the cassis, violet, plus and earth aromas are distinctly cool and elegant. There is excellent richness and volume to the impressively well-concentrated medium-bodied flavors that exude ample minerality onto the palate coating, powerful and massively long finish.

88-90The Wine Advocate

...palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin. Here, the oak is more integrated and allows succulent cassis and kirsch notes to develop on the lightly peppered, weighty finish.

Toasty, sappy nose. Juicy... Lots going on here – a fruit salad of concentration!


France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Nuits, Gevrey Chambertin, La Petite Chapelle

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.
