Community Tasting Notes (average 90.8 pts. and median of 91 pts. in 6 notes) - hiding notes with no text

 Tasted by Burgundy Al on 5/13/2014: Burgundy Producer Dinner (Bistro de l'Hotel - Beaune): At a very good place right now with lots of mature fruit and subtle spice in the background. Everything here is resolved, integrated and good right now. (1028 views)
 Tasted by Chidainey on 7/15/2012 & rated 92 points: Big, stinky, earthy red nose; nice direct red fruit; nice finish. (1303 views)
 Tasted by Chidainey on 12/30/2009 & rated 91 points: Pulled from Vinotemp and poured through a Vinturi directly into Riedel wine line burgundy glasses. Medium nose with dirt, minerals and slight black fruit - good depth. Light bodied fruit showing slightly tart black cherry, red cherry, minerals and dirt, in nuanced layers, with good depth. Still somewhat primary. Great sense of place. Feminine and beguiling. Medium length finish with more layers of dirt and minerals. Medium firm tannins. Still has years of life left - at least 2 or 3. A really pretty wine with finesse, not power. Very good with basic roasted chicken. (1595 views)
 Tasted by Chidainey on 12/27/2008 & rated 91 points: Burgundy & other stuff from the cellar (The house): Big, sexy nose of red cherry and minerals. Big, clean red cherry fruit, with some depth and complexity. Very clean and pure with soft tannins and decent acid, with a medium length finish. A nearly perfect example of 1er cru Burgundy for me, with everything I look for in such a wine. Could certainly age longer, but showed very well, particularly with the prime rib and Comte. A WOTN for a couple of the attendees. (1891 views)
 Tasted by Rupert on 2/25/2006 & rated 88 points: This followed two big mature ripe clarets and an equally big ripe Hermitage, and the contrast perhaps accentuated its light pretty cherry quality - pretty's the word. (1956 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.

Burgundy

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.

Pernand-Vergelesses 1er Cru

The appellation
At the confluence of two valleys, the appellation of Pernand-Vergelesses, perched between 290 and 360 meters, is in the northern portion of the Côte de Beaune. The AOC Pernand-Vergelesses covers 123 hectares: 90 hectares of red of which 44 are Premier Cru and 53 of white of which 17 are Premier Cru.
“Sous Frétille” has been classified as a Premier Cru since 2001 (but only for white wines.) The word “Frétille” is a derivation of “forestelle”, or forest in old French. Hence, “Sous Frétille” indiquates the geographic location of the parcel, just under the forest.
