RATINGS

90Stephen Tanzer

Jammy cherry and spice aromas. Fat and rich, but firmly structured, even a bit bound-up today. Quite stylish. Supple red fruit flavors are thoroughly ripe yet laid-back. Very graceful wine, finishing with good grip.

88-91The Wine Advocate

Has a delightful violet, blackberry, blueberry, stone and earth-infused nose. This wine's medium-to-full body, silky, and deeply sweet personality is replete with candied red fruits, and possesses a firm structure.

REGION

France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Beaune, Beaune, Les Vignes Franches

Les Vignes Franches is 24-acre Premier Cru vineyard in the southern part of the Beaune appellation, in Burgundy’s Cote de Beaune. It is one of Beaune’s 44 vineyards that is either partly or entirely Premier Cru. Beaune has no Grand Cru.

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.
