RATINGS

90-94Stephen Tanzer

Syrah-like aromas of black cherry, plum, espresso, bacon fat and smoky oak. Fat, lush and quite rich, with harmonious acidity giving shape to the flavors. Very rich, very strong finish.

REGION

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

TYPE

Red Wine, Pinot Noir, Grand 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.
