Côte de Nuits, Burgundy, France
"Here too discreet wood spice frames a pretty and cool mix of red and dark pinot fruit that is trimmed in warm earth nuances that are also reflected by the refined, pure and silky middle weight flavors. There is fine complexity and verve to the well-defined and persistent finish. A classic Chaignots of grace and harmony with no lack of aging potential."
-Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
"Good deep red. Expressive nose offers redcurrant, wild cherry and chocolate. Sweeter and lusher than the village offering, but with a slightly chunky quality to its somewhat medicinal flavors of licorice and chocolate. I wanted more floral high notes. This will drink early."
