Community Tasting History

Community Tasting Notes (average 90.3 pts. and median of 90 pts. in 4 notes) - hiding notes with no text

 Tasted by Chains1966 on 10/19/2013 & rated 94 points: Opened up after slow oxing for 2 hours, then decanted for 30min before recorking. Bright red fruit, spice, mushroom and lavender on the nose. Mid palate explosion of dried herbs and rasberries. Long smooth finish. This is still a baby but delicious and opening up now!! (792 views)
 Tasted by Burgundy Al on 2/8/2013 & rated 89 points: Knightsbridge Annual Wildman Burgundy Dinner (Trump International Hotel - Chicago IL): Red cherry and boysenberry aromas without any green elements today. Very accessible and enjoyable today, this seems much nicer than I recall from a few years back. Moderate depth and intensity, so probably right at its peak today. (1474 views)
 Tasted by winefool on 2/6/2009 & rated 91 points: Rousseau / Potel / Prieur Dinner (Knightsbridge): Pale red/orange color. Full dusty charcoal red fruit nose. Nice rich red fruit on the palate. (1928 views)
 Tasted by Burgundy Al on 2/6/2009 & rated 87 points: Wildman Tasting and Dinner (Knightsbridge - Northbrook IL): Mostly red fruit on nose and palate, with fairly good spice in background. Accessible already with just a bit of oak sticking out. A little bit of the 2004 "green" notes, but not overwhelming. Not very "Gevrey" in character for me. (1843 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.
