Wine Critic Reviews:

The 1993 Clos de la Roche is medium-to-dark ruby-colored with hints of amber on the edge of the glass. Its initially kinky, slightly barnyard-like aromas blew off quickly to display loads of spicy cedar scents. Medium-to-full-bodied, this earth, stone, black fruit-laden wine is well-concentrated and dense. It possesses its vintage's firm, dry, tannic backbone but has the potential to have the depth of fruit to overcome this trait with age.

Country France: Words fail us when trying to adequately portray France's place in the world of wine. It's downright impossible to imagine what wine would feel and taste like had it not been for France's many, many viticultural pioneers. Fine wine is the blood of France's vigorously beating heart, and it finds itself in many aspects of French culture. With a viticultural history that dates all the way back to the 6th century BC, France now enjoys its position as the most famous and reputable wine region on the planet. If you have a burning passion for masterfully crafted, mouth-watering, mind-expanding wines, then regular visits to France are probably already in your schedule, and for a good reason.

Every movement on your palate flows smoothly into the next, and you're left with your heart exposed, as the sensual and rich fruit plays with your imagination. The flavors are pure, there's a careful level of balance and intensity on display, and it's hard to keep your attention on just one aroma, because they all compete for the spotlight, in a way that isn't overwhelming or muddled.

Type of Wine Burgundy Red: If you have a craving for some beautiful, mind-expanding Pinot Noir, few regions can match the talent and consistency of Burgundy. The grape almost seems like it evolved for this very region, and its essence will stimulate your senses and arouse your imagination. Drink deep and experience almost spiritual enlightenment.
Varietal Pinot Noir: Pinot Noir is possibly the most versatile red grape when it comes to the ways it's been used over the years. From red wines to sparkling wines and beyond, there aren't many places where you can avoid hearing about it, and for a good reason. It's often easy to spot a bottle of Pinot Noir simply by the pale, translucent color, which transitions into a shade reminiscent of old-timey brickwork, adding a lovely dash of country charm to an already awe-inspiring drink.
