WB Rating: 89

Alcohol by volume: 13.0%
Price at time of purchase: $15.00 (North Berkeley Wine Imports)
Type: Pinot Noir / Burgundy
Principal varietal(s): Pinot Noir

A ridiculously good buy during one of North Berkeley's sales. This is a Premier Cru red Burgundy that was both (a) affordable and (b) really good -- a near impossibility these days. Deeply colored, this wine exhibited nose-caressing, complex aromas of dark cherry, red raspberry, rose petals, and an appealing herbal component like terragon. Medium bodied, smoothly textured, lingering flavors. - HK 2002-04-06
