Community Tasting Notes (average 3 notes) - and median of 90 pts. in hiding notes with no text
| ||Tasted by Loren Sonkin on 7/3/2011 & rated 90 points: Sineann wines and whole bunch of other stuff (Our home): Some loved this more than I. It has nice big cherry fruit on the nose and the palate. I did not find much complexity. It does have a delicious factor to it. This was from Magnum so perhaps it just need time to develop. It is outstanding, but in a night with great wines, it was just part of the pack for me. Perhaps I just don't get Burgundy as much as some. FWIW, I thought this was Peter Rosback's WOTN.

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.

Côte de Nuits on weinlagen.info
Morey St. DenisLocated in the Côte de Nuits, the wines of Morey St. Denis are often overshadowed by its neighbors; Gevrey-Chambertin to its north and Chambolle-Musigny to the south. But the wines in fact may be a middle ground between the two; rich, fruity, yet structured and tart, with just a touch of the barnyard. It is home to four Grand Crus in their entirety and a small portion of a fifth. The westernmost stripe, highest on the slope, contains its Grand Cru vineyards, which include such well-known names as Bonnes Marres, Clos de la Roche and Clos de Tart. The middle ground, in elevation and in reputation, houses most of Morey's Premier Cru vineyards. Because its vineyards (largely excepting the Grand Crus) are not as well-known, prices remain relatively reasonable considering the quality in the bottles.
