 Tasted by primitivo on 1/16/2014 & rated 90 points: Closed bouquet typical of french wines, with hints of green pepper, cherries, light smoke. My initial taste was uninspiring. A bit of sour, but smooth and balanced. Finish was.....nebulous. Nothing wrong with it, but nothing to inspire singular sipping. However, it paired quite nicely with the dinner bruschetta. I've struggled to find a wine pairing for this salty dish, but I think I have found it. Recommended (the bruschetta and the wine). (655 views)
 Tasted by Burgundy Al on 7/26/2013: IPNC Lunches and Dinners; 7/26/2013-7/27/2013 (McMinnville OR): Tasting. Mostly black fruit aromas and flavors, both meaty and dense with some sauvage hints, good concentration and firm tannic structure that will benefit from a few more years to soften. (1424 views)
 Tasted by Burgundy Al on 3/5/2013 & rated 89 points: Two bottles opened for dinner tonight, the first slightly better than the second. First bottle was nicely floral with charming red and black cherry aromas. Flavors more black fruit driven with good weight and density throughout, particularly for its level. This bottle was a "90 point" wine. The second bottle was far less floral or aromatically alluring while much closer on palate, overall probably "88 points." (1413 views)
 Tasted by Burgundy Al on 3/20/2012: Joyaux en Côte de Nuits (Marsannay/Gevrey-Chambertin) - Les Grands Jours de Bourgogne (Maison de Marsannay): Tasting. Black fruit, hint of oak, with a forest character. Moderate black fruit flavors come through with a classic, meaty Gevrey character, everything in excellent harmony today. Very good for its level.

 Tasted by cos65 on 2/18/2012: At the new Bliss in SATX. medium ruby colored. Some baked raspberry and blueberry pie spice. some candied flavors on palate with decent finish. Just **** (1392 views)
 Tasted by soyhead on 8/13/2011 & rated 85 points: Some subtle red fruit flavors are fast blown away by long piercing acidity. If I had to sum it up in one word: 'sour'. Use with food in lieu of lemon - perhaps pair with fried calamari. (1241 views)
 Tasted by SimonG on 6/3/2011: Cellar Visit: Domaine Marc Roy (Gevrey Chambertin): A little tighter and more restrained on the nose. Raspberry fruit comes through on the front of the palate, opens up, a touch of mineral and spice. Long silky finish. Lovely. *** (1360 views)

Pinot Noir

Varietal character (Appellation America) | Varietal article (Wikipedia)
Pinot Noir is the Noble red grape of Burgundy, capable of ripening in a cooler climate, which Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot will not reliably do. It is unpredictable and difficult both to grow and to vinify, but results in some of the finest reds in the world. It is believed to have been selected from wild vines two thousand years ago. It is also used in the production of champagne. In fact, more Pinot Noir goes into Champagne than is used in all of the Cote d'Or! It is also grown in Alsace, Germany, the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Croatia, Serbia, Italy, Austria, and so forth, with varying degrees of success.

Les vins de Bourgogne (Bureau interprofessionnel des vins de Bourgogne) (and in English)
Burgundy - The province of eastern France, famous for its red wines produced from Pinot Noir and its whites produced from Chardonnay. (Small of amounts of Gamay and Aligoté are still grown, although these have to be labeled differently.) The most famous part of the region is known as the Cote d'Or (the Golden Slope). It is divided into the Cote de Beaune, south of the town of Beaune (famous principally for its whites), and the Cote de Nuits, North of Beaune (home of the most famous reds). In addition, the Cote Chalonnaise and the Maconnais are important wine growing regions, although historically a clear level (or more) below the Cote d'Or. Also included by some are the regions of Chablis and Auxerrois, farther north.
