 Tasted by kosmik on 8/6/2014 & rated 87 points: Superbe nez, fruité, épicé, floral.
Bouche plutôt mince, rétro végétale, persistance courte.
...mais pas impresionné. (846 views)
 Tasted by Gargantua on 6/10/2014: Grands Jours de Bourgogne 2014 Day 3: Macon, Beaune, Hautes Cotes 3-9-14: Only 8 mos in bottle--needs time. Nose of stems, marc de bourgogne, tiny bit of cedar. All follows on palate. Most ageworthy of all PV crus. (1077 views)
 Tasted by Englishman's Claret on 5/14/2014 & rated 91 points: Brambly and spicy, almost sappy. Earthy undertones - I like this. Still unformed on the palate but good potential. Probably going to start drinking well at 6-7 years old. (918 views)
 Tasted by yofog on 3/23/2014 & rated 91 points: Really fresh, vibrant, and stony, with tangy cherry, floral notes and hints of smoke, coffee, and herbs that will come out more in time. (871 views)
 Tasted by EMichels on 9/28/2013 & rated 88 points: Flat; Lacking acid; Clean fruit; Short finish (1383 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.

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.
