Community Tasting Notes (average 5 notes) - and median of 90 pts. in hiding notes with no text
| ||Tasted by ksmith on 11/25/2012 & rated 90 points: Ruby/garnet color. Nose of spice, funk (saddle leather), brambles and forest floor. On the palate, dark cherries, acid, smooth and soft tannins, some of the same leather and vanilla from oak. Finishes with a touch of heat, but not at all distracting. Overall, a nicely balanced wine, probably not worth the tariff, but part of the Burgundy experience. (708 views)|
| ||Tasted by Paul S on 10/24/2009 & rated 87 points: Confrerie des Chevaliers du Tastevin Singapore Chapitre de la St Hubert (The Lighthouse, Fullerton Hotel): After a string of surprsingly good 2003 Burgs, this was close to a disaster to my tastes - a mishapened creature of a Frakenstein vintage. There was little sign of this on the nose - just a rather elevated sweetness level in its red cherry fruit. Otherwise, pretty normal, with earth, meat and smoke notes. The palate was rather displeasing though. Lots of toasted notes, sticky cherries, agressive 2003 tannins, jammy sweetness. All a bit bit clumsy and stodgy, almost flat in its lack of acidity. Very new wordly on the finish, with chewy tannins, lots of toasty spice and a rather diffused, loosely knit structure. I can how this could really please palates that prefer say ripe Californian pinots - but I did not like it one bit. (1775 views)|
| ||Tasted by Urban Nomad on 4/21/2009 & rated 91 points: A great wine in a good place. Developed nose; barnyard and fruit. Soft, quenching, and sure to hold a good bit longer. I tasted the 1997 not long ago, and it's turning that last leg. The only thing shameful about drinking this 2003 was unrestraint in not waiting for a more special occasion. However, I was glad to know those on the patio were fine with thier beer late this paticular evening... (1469 views)|
| ||Tasted by reichken on 3/19/2008 & rated 89 points: Drunk at Home. Popped and poured, sweet spicey cherry nose, a bit zippy in the palate, some tasty vanilla oak mixed with cherries, quite frward and pleasant, easy burg to drink and enjoy (1634 views)|
| ||Tasted by mike on 9/18/2005 & rated 91 points: Colour - Deep ruby red|
Aroma - Red fruits, violets, chocolate and spicy oak.
Palate - on entry light pure and clean, fattening out to dark fruit and tannic mid-palate that holds through to the finish. The fruit in this wine, with enough brambles to remind you that it is burgundy, is so closely integrated to the tannin profile it is difficult to separate the fruit from the tannins. This results in a light to medium structured wine rather then a more disjointed fuller bodied wine one may have expected with so firm tannins. Because of the balance I think this will age well.

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.
