 Tasted by JPPeterson on 4/20/2014 & rated 95 points: This was just about as perfect as a PN can get still with lots of time left. Decanted for an hour or more. Wonderful balance.
The wine looks garnet colored. The legs are medium. There is no sediment in the bottle. It smells like raspberry, cherry, forest floor, cedar, oak and tobacco. It tastes like black currant (cassis), raspberry, cherry, dust, mineral, forest floor, cedar, oak and clove. The body is medium/full. The wine has silky texture. The wine finishes medium. The wine has medium acidity. (692 views)
 Tasted by ramwines on 12/20/2012 & rated 87 points: The wine had come right out of my cellar 15 minutes earlier and was a little colder than I would have liked for the first pour. On the nose there were some very subtle hints of fruit, but none of the usual terroir that I expected. After the first taste I was moaning under my breadth about another disappointing, too young, closed-up wine, as there was not much going on with my taste buds. I immediately decanted and poured the majority of the wine slowly, hoping for maximum aeration in minimal time.

Over the next hour or so, this Burgundy began to open and show more fruit and barnyard characteristics on the nose and some cherries and spices on the palate. But I expected more for my $60. The overall conclusion reached by everyone tasting the wine was that I should have waited a few years. Oh well, we live and learn. (1124 views)
 Tasted by JPPeterson on 11/4/2012 & rated 88 points: - Garnet color and aromas of oak, cedar, black currant and cherry. It's somewhat balanced and has flavours of licorice anise, vanilla, cedar, raspberry and black currant with a medium/full body. Juicy texture with a medium finish - Had, again, with grilled tuna. A very young wine. I may not try this for another year. (1205 views)

Toast, vanilla, cream, cedar, over slight perfume and red fruit
Medium acid, body and flavour intensity, medium minus, fine silky tannin, juicy red berry fruit, spice, balanced, long finish. Very good (1243 views)

Domaine des Perdrix

Producer website
Domaine des Perdrix has 12 hectares in Cote de Nuits within the famous villages of Nuits st George and Vosne Romanee. Of this, nearly 5 hectares produce the excellent Nuits St George Premier Cru "Aux Perdrix".

The domaines Grand Cru Echezeaux is situated in Echezeaux du Dessus, right in the centre of this prestigous vineyard.

Domaine de Perdrix wines are attractive when very young but also have the ability to age. The wines combine elegant fruit and complex structure, exhibiting the purity and greatness of the terroirs of Burgundy.

Because of the quality of its vineyards, and the rigorous vineyard management and vinification, the Domaine des Perdrix has become famous as a leading domaine, in fact as one of the best 'Grands Vins de Bourgogne'.

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.

While there is monopoly control of four of the six grand crus, the village has at least forty growers sharing its vineyards.
