RATINGS

90-91+ The Wine Advocate

...it coats the palate with waves of syrupy black cherries, blackberries, and strawberries. Lush, intense, and deep, this huge, medium to full-bodied wine also reveals an extended, harmonious, beautifully ripe finish...

90Wine Spectator

Marked by toasty new oak now, this flashy red shows extracted black cherry and blackberry notes, sweetness and a fresh structure. Plenty of tannins, yet they're ripe and well-integrated. Good spicy length.

89-91Burghound.com

A subtle touch of oak frames an attractive mix of red and black pinot fruit and pungent earth and underbrush aromas, leading to precise, pure and sappy flavors that offer the best intensity of any of these Beaune 1ers.

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.
