...leads with fresh black raspberry, wood smoke and vanilla, comes onto the palate juicy with fresh black fruits and warm beef juices, and with a depth, refinement of tannins and creaminess of texture...

Sexy aromas of dark raspberry, flowers and smoky oak, with a touch of reduction. Rich, pliant and sweet, with lovely breadth to its spicy flavors. Boasts plenty of fat...

...impressively concentrated flavors that are also carrying lots of gas. The finish is chewy, powerful and seriously long and my marks are given on the basis of the quality of the impeccable raw materials...

Lots of fruit and structure without anything being forced. Great balance and tension. Really quite energetic without melodrama. Bravo.


France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Nuits, Nuits-St.-Georges, Clos des Corvees Pagets

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.
