WB Rating: 88

Alcohol by volume: 13.5%
Price at time of purchase: $52.99 (Total Wine and More, Laurel MD)
Type: Pinot Noir / Burgundy
Principal varietal(s): Pinot Noir

Another $50+ red Burgundy (this one a Premier Cru) that lacks the Burgundy magic, at least to my California-jaded taste buds. That said, this is a solid, moderately intense Pinot with earthy cherry and cranberry fruit, a somewhat rustic texture, and good length. Perhaps another few years in the bottle would help this wine blossom, but I don't see it ever becoming silky smooth and generous. - HK 2012-12-04
