Community Tasting Notes (average 89.5 pts. and median of 90 pts. in 7 notes) - hiding notes with no text

 Tasted by RockinCabs on 9/6/2014 & rated 90 points: Nose: Complex and deep with Blackberry, Cherry and Raspberry fruit, but it is the earthy, spice and savory notes that set this off. Palate: Needs about 20 minutes in glass to unwind, but a mineral inflected, earthy, sweet and powerful wine emerges. So much going on. Finish: A bit tart and occasionally short. Still showing nice fruit from the vintage and a streak of oak. (568 views)
 Tasted by Decanting fool on 3/26/2014 & rated 86 points: Elusive, coy and enigmatic in a way that makes you work. Tart and somewhat stingy, but interesting. The flavor comes in waves- one sip it's there, the next it's not. This is a wine only a Burgundy lover could love, and it's pretty much why I stopped buying Burgundies and have become a Rhone ranger. In EVERY parameter and at every price point you get so much more bang for your buck in Rhones north and south. I know that a great Burgundy is THE transcendent experience in the world of wine. but you have to break the bank trying- and even then god knows what you're going to wind up with at any price.
This is a mediocre but drinkable Village wine that reflects the general sorry state of affairs for Burgundy lovers on any kind of budget. (735 views)
 Tasted by Burgundy Al on 2/17/2013 & rated 89 points: Ripe blackberry with a touch of liqueur aromas. Similar lush and ripe on palate with some background spice and traces of some Gevrey animale character. Perhaps not quite as vibrant and exciting as I recall from when tasted at the Domaine from barrel, but still very impressive for its level. (1753 views)
 Tasted by Burgundy Al on 9/13/2010: Lignier-Michelot Visit and Tasting (Morey St.-Denis): Tasting at winery. Darker fruit on nose with aromas of slowly braised meat. Black cherry flavors with good spice that pick up weight, density and power on finish. Impressive Villages. Wine to seek out. 20% whole cluster, which seems to be more common in 2009 for Gevrey than I've ever heard before. From 2 plots in Gevrey, which Virgile says each provide unique character to make a more complete wine. (1890 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.
