RATINGS

90The Wine Advocate

Marrow and meat stock dominate, but ripe red fruits, licorice, and crushed stone. Firm tannins – allied with the sense of stoniness...glycerin richness and concentration of red berries and meat stock help keep the feel from degenerating...

90-92Stephen Tanzer

High-pitched aromas of black raspberry, licorice and game, further lifted by a floral topnote. Juicy, spicy and pure, with very good cut to the dense, sweet black fruit flavors. Finishes with a firm tannic spine and noteworthy purity.

89-92Burghound.com

Here the nose is also very Gevrey in character with an intensely earthy nose of wild red berry fruit aromas liberally sprinkled with jerky, underbrush and a pungent iron-like element that can also be found on the sleekly muscled flavors, all wrapped in a long, sappy and delicious finish.

REGION

France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Nuits, Gevrey-Chambertin, Cherbaudes

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.
