 Tasted by BailliSacks on 1/12/2013 & rated 90 points: Quite nice, not amazing. Soft, light bodied. The nose and front palate very perfumed,. Taste also led with acid. Relatively short finish. Wants food, but easily overwhelmed. (1622 views)
 Tasted by Paul D on 6/26/2012: Burgundy WIMPS (The Ledbury, Notting Hill, London): Lovely aromatic nose, strawberries, spice, floral notes.

 Tasted by simonj on 1/16/2011 & rated 88 points: Subtle, even to the extend of being too lightweight. Quite pleasant all the same. Not likely to improve however. (1863 views)
 Tasted by lepetitchateau on 11/9/2010 & rated 92 points: Nice clarity, good strawberry nose. Prett and tender delicacy on the palate, classic wine, good concentration and balance but will require more time. (1394 views)
 Tasted by Anonymous on 4/26/2010 & rated 91 points: Very good wine. A much lighter and more elegant wine than I expected. Initially a little closed, but opened up nicely over the evening. (1561 views)
 Tasted by simonj on 3/13/2010 flawed bottle: Bloody thing was corked. I hope the rest of the case are better. (1533 views)
 Tasted by calnative on 12/23/2009 & rated 91 points: softer elegant Corton. This one had very nice lively red fruits, good structure, and nice minerality in the finish. Very enjoyable bottle and I really like it now with the fruit showing so well... (1693 views)
 Tasted by dbkitc on 7/1/2009 & rated 89 points: (at Corton – NYC) Corton at Corton – seemed appropriate. Pretty good bottle. Soft cherry fruit that developed a nice velvet texture with 60 minutes air time. The finish was a bit short and did not quite have the presence I would have liked. A gentle Grand Cru that did match well with the very good food. (89) (1717 views)
 Tasted by AndrewSGHall on 4/15/2009: (WD-50) Suprisingly open and expressive. Minerally core with saucy fruits and mossy elements. Primary. Currants and a rocky / velvet texture which is incipient Corton. Did really well with the wild array of flavors in Wylie's dishes. (1793 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.
