 Tasted by calgarywino on 5/26/2015 & rated 93 points: Stunning! This wine definitely needs a long decant - 4 hours would suit this right now. At first an overwhelming cherry bomb on the palate that settles down after time. Developed some hints of spice and fruit toned back after several hours. Great stuff that still has at least 8 - 10 years ahead of it. (422 views)
 Tasted by Pinotnut on 1/1/2015 & rated 93 points: Another beautiful wine in a good place right now, but with lots of life remaining. Went perfectly with a sturgeon in red wine sauce with lentils. (648 views)
 Tasted by Argrath on 11/15/2014 & rated 91 points: At first rather shy... But then a generous and sublime nose. Red fruit of rosehip and raspberries. Good depth with chalkstone minerality. Developed notes of sandalwood,sSpices and a beginning meatiness.
Medium body, harmonious, spicy palate. Smooth and grippy. Ripe tannins and good length. Succulent and juicy with a nice liquorice finish.
This wine is in a very good place now. Tasted half-blind this was identified as one of the three Volnay's. (784 views)
 Tasted by Richard Jennings on 5/4/2014 & rated 93 points: Dark cherry red color; appealing, talc, floral, tart cherry nose; tasty, ripe cherry, mineral, raspberry, talc palate; medium-plus finish (748 views)
 Tasted by sfwineguy on 2/9/2013 & rated 93 points: Very balanced, sweet in a good way, seamless integration of fruit and oak. Drinking well now and should for 4-5 more years. (1796 views)
 Tasted by TomTom on 10/1/2012: Wow, this was not what I expected (or hoping for). Not a bad wine, just very forward with tart fruit and a medium long finish. Not balanced for my taste as it was simply too fruit driven without a ton nuance. I'm certainly not against fruit but I guess I was looking for something more earthy and Volnay-like. (2033 views)
 Tasted by carlwhat on 2/5/2010: disjointed, tannic, and very fruit forward. hopefully time with smooth out and blend the elements, as right now they seemed all out of balance.... (2717 views)
 Tasted by dd on 9/22/2008: awesome fruit balanced just a really nice wine always changing (2595 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.
