| ||Tasted by La Cave d'Argent on 9/29/2012 & rated 89 points: This medium ruby wine drinks well above its pedigree. The nose shows intense aromas of candied red fruit (similar to "Red Vines"), potpourri and rose petals. Light-to-medium-bodied on the palate, with medium acidity, light sweet tannins, well-integrated alcohol (listed as 13%) and red fruit flavors. The middle palate is solid and the medium-length finish is smooth. Definitely village-level or above in any blind red Burgundy 2009 tasting! Drink now-12/17. (1787 views)|
| ||Tasted by Ben Christiansen on 9/27/2012: Within the village of Gevery. yes, there it is on the map. Drinks like a Gevery -- dark cherry fruit, sweetly frutied, rich, layered. Damn!! (1670 views)|
| ||Tasted by Ben Christiansen on 9/19/2012: Pronouced aromas -- sweet cherries, rich rounded. Structured, sweet and round on the mid palate, rather amazing. Now what is the price? Has some purity. Works at $30 or so. Has all the black fruit of Gevrey that you ever need. (1590 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.

# 2013 vintage:
"2013 is a vintage that 20 years ago would have been a disaster."
"low yields and highly variable reds, much better whites."
"Virtually all wines were chaptalised, with a bit of sugar added before fermentation to increase the final alcohol level."
