This is the top of the Côte de Nuits. Home to the famous Grand Crus of Romanée, Romanée-Conti, Romanée St. Vivant, Richebourg, La Tâche, Echézeaux, Grands Echézeaux, and La Grand Rue, this village really makes you realize how much extraordinary wine can come from a tiny place. This is the home of quintessential Burgundy-deep, rich, refined and powerful.
"A smoky cherry aroma leads to tart cherry and cranberry flavors in this pure, fresh red. This needs to breathe a little to show its elegance and juicy texture. Fine length. Decant if you must drink now." Wine Spectator, May 31, 2012
”an elegant and relatively reserved nose also reflects asian-style spices together with dark berry fruit and plum aromas that merge into very suave and round middle weight flavors brimming with dry extract that culminate in a firm intense and quite serious finish that is supported by firm tannins and excellent length.”- *90-92/100 allen meadows burghound
