Removed from a professional wine storage facility; Purchased at auction

Ends Sunday, 7pm Pacific


...extremely rich yet beautifully detailed flavors that possess superb intensity as well as fine complexity on the tension-filled and wonderfully persistent finish. Terrific.

89-92Stephen Tanzer

...reverberating flavors of black cherry, licorice and wild herbs. The aromatic, building, firmly tannic finish is extended by piquant chalky minerality.

Seductive and perfumed red fruit. Delicate, fresh and harmonious. Tannins are very fine and barely visible given how young this is but they are not lacking in the overall balance. Long elegant finish.


France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Beaune, Beaune, Les Greves

Les Greves is a 75-acre Premier Cru vineyard in the central part of the Beaune appellation, in Burgundy's Cote de Beaune. Though Beaune has no Grand Cru vineyards, it has 44 vineyards that are either partly or completely Premier Cru. Clive Coates has written that in the central section of the Beaune appellation is “where you will find the finest examples of premier cru in Beaune.”


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.
