 Tasted by Burgundy Al on 5/1/2014: Acker "Paulee" Burgundy Dinner (The Fourth - New York NY): Tasted late in the evening. Lots of mature black berry and cherry with great spice. I wouldn't expect this to get any better from here. (1378 views)
 Tasted by johnh1001 on 5/1/2014: Acker Paulee Dinner (The Fourth, NYC): Black fruit, bacon and faded spice. I was fading too at this point, but the wine didn't stand out. (956 views)
 Tasted by psmith on 11/23/2012 & rated 94 points: Friday after Thanksgiving II (Palm Beach Gardens, FL): Dark, a bit sloppy in texture, but wonderfully expressive and deep. Dark fruits. Good detail. (3073 views)
 Tasted by Burgundy Al on 11/23/2012 & rated 93 points: Friday after Thanksgiving (FAT) (Palm Beach Gardens FL): Tasting, brief note. Lots of very ripe black cherry and blackberry, showing in an advance and mature style. Lots of great mushroom character. Still in its peak drinking window, but I'd expect this was better a few years ago than right now. (3273 views)
 Tasted by Khamaj on 9/7/2012 & rated 93 points: Wow. Youthful and delicious. Grand cru quality. Unexpectedly good. Classic Vosne nose, slightly reduced on the palette. Wish I had more. (3179 views)
 Tasted by lepetitchateau on 6/11/2012 & rated 91 points: Bold, brash wine with a big frontal attack, but then it devolves into astringency, and thins out. Rated on its best quality. (2676 views)
 Tasted by BradE on 9/13/2011: Paired the 88 and 89. The crowd consensus was the 89, which is deeper and richer, and was great. But the 88 was soft and delicate, and I felt showed really, really well. (2663 views)
 Tasted by Pacalet on 7/29/2010 & rated 90 points: Color still rather young, nose with tea, stems and faint remaining of Leroy's typical nose. Very clear in color, in the mouth still youthful and still got attack, but drinking v nicely now, will hold for at least 3-5years. A good if not a great Leroy (1807 views)
 Tasted by sstra on 5/6/2010 & rated 93 points: Brick color, but not extensive. Tar and anis on the nose. Great acidity and very long lasting. Some tannin still. The wine was great and in good shape. (1700 views)
 Tasted by Vinotas on 6/11/2009: Ooooooh... I think I need a moment. This had that lovely musk that older Burgs get, something I just want to rub my face into. Wow. Sorry, I need another moment. Dark fruits and berries and sous-bois and spices really fought for your attention, with a velvety mouthfeel that carried everything through to the long, softly tannic finish. If ever you want to show someone Vosne spices, this would be a good example to use. This kept adding weight and complexity through the night, a real beauty. (1198 views)
 Tasted by Keith Levenberg on 9/28/2007 & rated 90 points: The Doctor Is In (Eleven Madison Park): Barnyard aroma with a deeply fruited palate that's figgy but not raisined (a defect a prior bottle of this wine once had) and dusted with tannin. Delicious for awhile but it lags down the stretch when a hint of bretty band-aid emerges on the finish. (2405 views)
 Tasted by BradE on 7/15/2007: This didn't really ring my bell. Others (Chris P) liked it better. (1921 views)
 Tasted by Siggy on 7/14/2007 & rated 94 points: Tasting Group Dinner (Jeff's House): Deliciously fresh and youthful. Crystalline clarity. Complex nose of smoke, ripe black cherries, and Asian spice that carries through to the palate. Finely textured and richly concentrated, without any obvious weight or heaviness. Delicious. (2358 views)
 Tasted by Jeremy Holmes on 12/12/2004: Near perfect red Burgundy. Sure it was modern in style with some well seasoned oak but there was pristine, dense fruit that had all but soaked it up. The fruit was plush, sweet and vinous with some lovely soil development. It was a wine that continued to build in the glass with a seamless quality. Would have been the wine of the night in most company but tonight it was up against a mature Coche. (766 views)
 Tasted by AJ72 on 5/22/2003 & rated 79 points: Very solid almost impenetrable style which is not my favourite. Not very elegant, quite structured. A disappointment given the price. (1781 views)
 Tasted by Kevin H on 3/9/2000 & rated 86 points: Historic note. A big disappointment. Some complexity on the nose: meat, thyme, raspberry but a rather closed wine with hard tannins. Only medium bodied and nothing profound in terms of flavour - red fruits. More like a village wine than a premier cru from one of the best producers of Burgundy. Perhaps too young when I drank it 2000? (2283 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 Beaux Monts

Beaux Monts covers a little over 11 hectares and is further subdivided into Beaux Monts, Les Hautes Beaux Monts, Les Beaux Monts Hauts, and Les Beaux Monts Bas. It borders the grand cru vineyard of Echézeaux, though at a higher altitude. Quality is variable with some wines described as "weedy" and they are typically less dense than wines from lower altitudes. Better examples may have a high-toned perfume. Top producers for Beaux Monts include Domaine Bertagna, Bruno Clavelier, Leroy, Hudelot-Noëllats, Louis Jadot, and Henri Jayer.

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.

Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru

Vosne Romanée is one of the smallest wine villages in Burgundy The wines possess diverse characteristics, but they can generally considered to have complexity and longevity beyond nearly all other wines in the world. The village has six grand crus: Romanée-Conti, La Romanée, La Tâche, Richebourg, Romanée-Saint-Vivant, and La Grande Rue. While there is monopoly control of four of the six grand crus, the village has at least forty growers sharing its vineyards. The top premier cru includes Les Malconsorts, Cros Parantoux, Les Chaumes, and Clos des Réas.
