Wine Critic Reviews:

A very deft and subtle touch of wood frames the ripe floral, plum and darker pinot fruit aromas that introduce intense, powerful and also mineral-driven full-bodied flavors that sacrifice no sense of detail or balance on the terrifically long, pure and mouth coating finish. This is a serious wine that is clearly built for the very long haul yet there is a lovely and sophisticated mouth feel. It will need at least a decade in the cellar and should easily last for 30+ years if properly stored. Burghound.com

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.
