 Tasted by jwsmith on 8/23/2014 & rated 94 points: 2002 is starting to drink very well, this wine was big but elegant. A wow wine for sure from an underrated producer., (546 views)
 Tasted by bon vivant on 11/26/2013: A rather un- inspiring bottle which started off a bit muted and monolithic. Our hopes for improvement as the wine set in the decanter were diminished; after several hrs as the wine continued to loose whatever little fruit was evident early on. I kept it refrigerated for several more days hoping for a comeback which never materialized. (1066 views)
 Tasted by Burgundy Al on 10/10/2013 & rated 91 points: Another Casual Burgundy Dinner (Storefront Company - Chicago IL): Red and black fruit aromas with some subtle earth and spice. Starts off subtle, picks up more power towards middle and end. Good balance. (1439 views)
 Tasted by Kirk Grant on 7/8/2013: I don't see how anyone could think of this as Burgundy. To me this wine was more about the wine maker and less about the vinyard. The nose was the most interesting part of this wine...but only for the first 20 minutes...after that it was kind of blah. This was so extracted and dense that it could have been a California Pinot Noir to my thoughts. Just a mess...I hope time saves this wine. Right now I would buy this if I saw it in a store for $30/bottle. (1200 views)
 Tasted by LBBURGJUNKIE on 8/21/2011 & rated 92 points: Classic Beze. Dark fruits with a touch of cherry and raspberry, fine tannins and solid but not overpowering acidity. Still tightly wound and will need several years to gain weight and come around. (2168 views)
 Tasted by Burgundy Al on 8/13/2011 flawed bottle: Another Saturday at Knightsbridge - mostly blind (Northbrook, IL): I think this might have been corked because the fruit was completely muted, even though there were no "corky" telltale signs aromatically. Most others think it was oxidized, but it was certainly not oxidized due to heat damage. (1999 views)
 Tasted by jwsmith on 2/15/2009 & rated 94 points: Perfect color almost text book reddish berry with golden hue and light, nose of bright red fruit and cinnamon, pure stone and sappy young young red. I have hde this wine 3 times 2 bottle and 1 cask in 5 years almost no aging. (1552 views)
 Tasted by asianwinehunter on 12/16/2005 & rated 91 points: On opening very promising nose of black fruits and earthy aroma. Very tight. Decided to decant this for 20-30 minutes which may have been a mistake. Finish was nice. Suspect it has shut down now and won't be back for ~5 years (9/2005). (1835 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 Aligot 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.
