 Tasted by Lord Rayas on 8/25/2012 & rated 97 points: bursting with complex aroma of violets, spices, forest floor. light colour and perhaps fading but what a privilege to sample such a wonderful expample of old DRC. better than the 66 La Tache tasted side by side. (2229 views)
 Tasted by lepetitchateau on 5/23/2012 & rated 95 points: Clear, pure, elegant and powerful, crystalline even... amazing wine. Does not have the grip of the La Tache '62 in the same flight, but it is a beautiful wine... nit - touch of a watery mid-palate. The finish goes and goes, gently fading. (1964 views)
 Tasted by 60ouvrees on 2/3/2008: What an incredible wine. Maybe a notch below the la Tache but absolutely delicious and still many years of life left in it. (2020 views)

Vintage Tastings, La Paulee 2009, Part III (3/7/2009)
(DRC Richebourg) Both ‘62s were just flat-out incredible, best wines of my life category, both riding the ’62 wave as high as it can go. While some ‘62s are starting to gracefully plateau, these two both felt like they were still on the way up. They are wines around which to make travel arrangements.  97+ points

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.
