This wine has nice clean nose of strawberry, cherry, licorice, and flint. The taste is piercing with massive acidity, sour cherry, and fresh flowers. The finish is pretty complex for such a basic burgundy with some chocolate peeking through. If you like burgundy, this is for you. It's well worth the tag.

Cherry nose, with a hint of leather. Sour cherry fruit, quite a lot of mouth-watering acidity. An earthy impression finishes. More studious than the Cotes de Beaune Villages, but not as enjoyable to my taste.

As timo noted, a bit more substantial than the 2007 Cotes de Beaune, but less fun. High acidity (for drinking with food, clearly); bright, clear, cherry.

This wonderfully fragrant wine is a great deal at this price; it is comparable to many wines costing three times its modest price and has everything lovers of Burgundian reds cherish and never seem to find in pinot noirs produced anywhere else on the planet. It's still a year or probably two short of its optimum drinking window. I myself have returned to the store and purchased a case for cellaring.

Everything I've said about this wonderful wine thirteen months ago holds true. As noted then I returned to the store and purchased a case. I've just finished the last glass of the first bottle that I opened from that case. My patience has most definitely been rewarded. The wine is still available at that the same price! I'm considering a second case! Nothing from California or Oregon, at two or three times the price, is as good!

I have to agree with tonystro this wine is holding very well, and in my opinion, improving with bottle age. Picking up a nuttiness and more earthy undertones with this now. Going back for even more.

I drank a bottle this year and found it to be flatter than last year. I only had one bottle though so perhaps it was just me.

This is a nice, inexpensive Burgundy that showcases some of the classic characteristics of the style. Aromas start out very floral, dominated by roses, but with a hint of barnyard funk. As time goes on, the fruit becomes more focal. Ripe strawberries dominate, with a hint of tart cranberry. Very light in color and light in body, certainly old world style and very different than most Cali or Oregon Pinots. Highly acidic flavor, with minimal tannins. Overall, smooth, fruity and tasty.

Nice nose of sweet cherry and floral aromas. Flavorful and bright while light on its feet. I like the blend of sour cherry/strawberry and earth with a touch of tanginess. A good old world value. Worth a repurchase.
