Community Tasting History

Community Tasting Notes (average 93 pts. and median of 93 pts. in 1 note) - hiding notes with no text

 Tasted by fclarity on 12/19/2013 & rated 93 points: Tasted blind, this wine had a deep red/purple center with light red/clear rims. The high- intensity nose of black cherries, cola, and soil was attractive.

In the mouth this wine was medium bodied with great richness. It had light rounded tannin and nice balance. This wine avoided the typical hyper-intensity of most 1993s. However, like many of them, my guess is that this wine will still benefit from 5+ years in the cellar. (572 views)

Professional 'Channels'
By Bill Nanson
Burgundy-Report (7/1/2005)
(Pousse d'Or Volnay Caillerets) Deep colour. Equally deep nose of undergrowth, turned-over leaves, black fruit and black olive. Mouth-wrapping tannins, tons of black fruit that gets purer with time in the glass. I think I would have guessed Gevrey. Really interesting.

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.
