 Tasted by johnh1001 on 3/16/2014 & rated 90 points: Dark fruit and spice on the nose. Seemed a little muddled on the palate. (456 views)
 Tasted by Burgundy Al on 2/8/2014 & rated 92 points: Wines Tasted at HDH Auction (Tru - Chicago IL): Open 2 hours before serving. Sensational spice driven aromatic start with more black fruit than earth. Very alluring. Similar on palate with some firming tannins, showing some red cherry hints as well. Big positive surprise with none of the bitterness sometimes found in 1988s. (881 views)
 Tasted by acyso on 2/8/2014 & rated 93 points: HDH auction tasting at Tru (Chicago, IL): Very austere nose with a little bit of burnt earth and some darker fruit. The palate is also very austere with some light earthy notes. Loads of acidity but this is open for business now. Awesome. (894 views)
 Tasted by tooch on 2/8/2014 & rated 93 points: HDH Auction (Tru - Chicago, IL): This is the kind of spicy, dense aromatic nose I just love in Burgundy. Some brown sugar on the palate, but mostly a melange of cherry, currant, pomegranate, earth, and florals. Great length, and balance too. Lovely stuff. (1279 views)
 Tasted by winenutnyc on 5/9/2008: lovely lovely nose: earth, a bit of game and iron along with black cherries. The palate is fantastic-great perfume, just dances across the tongue- fantastic stuff. (1111 views)
 Tasted by peternelson on 2/19/2007 & rated 94 points: Yujean Kang’s: Little stinky sock, but in a good way; nice animal/sweat notes; soft mth, grt soft tartness to it; sm metal, long ass fin. Awesome. WOTN. (668 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.
