RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.

Editorial Reviews for Beaune "Les Grèves" Premier Cru
Mean and austere on the nose with some raw oak, mint and light meaty notes. On the palate, this was a touch soft and chewy with some mineral earth notes and herbal nuances. Not much is going on here, though the finish does show some lingering bitter tannins. 85 pts
This opens sappy and sweet with oak to the fore and a background of licorice spice. There is a deep, roast meat, veal reduction edge to the fruit and high tones of cola and floral tones. In the mouth this is bright with a bit of an extracted feel. Simple cherry and cranberry fruit is presented in a modernish package of clumsy tannins and elevated alcohol that yields an inelegant whole though the finish does offer a pleasant medicinal note. 86pts
09 CHASSAGNE-MONTRACHET CLOS DU CHATEAU, 1ER CRU Chateau de la Maltroye , White Wine, 750ml Always a winner, this shows a purity and vibrance unusual for the vintage. A mingling of peaches and fresh citrus, laced with white flowers and flowing minerality. Stylishly serious - and most seriously delicious! https://www.burgundywinecompany.com/index.php?main_page=index&manufacturers_id=57&zenid=q3r430tvq2fbqtknceetrrpnn3
Rich bubblegum fruit, sweet cinnamon and plum. Some nice cherry cola fruit on the palate but overall seemed lacking in acid balance and a bit flabby.
What the ?!?! Smells like butter at first smell! Crazy! Never smelled that before in a wine. I can't believe it's not butter. This is TOTALLY an artist wine. Crazy vintners! 91/100
For as simple as this wine is, it's actually fairly interesting. Very dark cherry, leather, herbaceous flavors meet and then turn towards this puckering tartness on the finish where you expect dry tannins. I wish the nose were better; it's way too hot to enjoy, despite being only 12%. It has the sort of imbalance that is charming and almost rustic, but it's definitely not a world class wine.
I purchased this wine based on a referral from the owner of the Market Place Wine Shop, Charlottesville, Va. Robert said he thought for the price it just might be as good as some very good and more expensive ones. That was an understatement. I also gave a bottle to my best friend and he called me the other night and said he and company loved it as well. I was embarrased to tell him what I paid for it. I now recommend it to anyone who likes Pinot Noir. Why do I like it so much.......I love the taste of it with almost any meal as well as just a great wine to drink by itself. Try it you'll like it......no I think you'll love it.
Apple and flower aromas and palate. Subtle oak, lovely balance.
External Reviews for Beaune "Les Grèves" Premier Cru
Brothers Antonio and Paolo Sperone own and manage this small family estate in the Piedmont. Having already discovered their extremely good, value-priced Barolo, we had to try their Pinot Noir when we heard about it. And we were very impressed. Not just because it is a textbook example of beautifully balanced, cool-climate grown Pinot Noir, but because the price was unheard of for a wine of this quality. Piedmont is a very similar micro-climate to Burgundy and this Pinot shows classic characteristics of black cherry and strawberry fruit with bright acidity, earthy nuances and lively tannins. It's aged six months in oak barrels and shows a marked complexity. This is one you've got to try!
Medium red. Wild musky aromas of smoke leather and tobacco with red fruits in the deep background. Then surprisingly tight and chewy in the mouth in a distinctly masculine style with berry and spice flavors currently cut off by substantial dusty tannins. Good intensity and energy here but a touch rustic. 88+ Stephen Tanzers IWC.
The lovely 2010 Petits Monts from Domaine Georges Nokllat was raised in fifty percent new oak and was showing quite well at the time of my visit in March wafting from the glass in a complex blend of red and black cherries coffee bean dark soil tones woodsmoke a nice touch of fresh nutmeg and plenty of spicy new oak. On the palate the wine is deep fullish and very pure on the attack with impressive minerality fine mid-palate depth and a very long ripely tannic and tangy finish. Today the wine is a bit marked by its wood on the backend but there is plenty of stuffing to eventually absorb these wood tannins and the wine should be excellent with eight to ten years of bottle age. There are eight barrels of Petits Monts in the cellars in 2010- four of which were new. A very good example of this great terroir. 2019-2040+. 91+. John Gilman.
At present ...there are notes of reduction yet the nose seems fresh and ripe anyway. The cool restrained and mineral-driven flavors possess good volume before terminating in a linear and persistent finish... Burghound.
Bright medium red. Medicinal red fruits and a hint of menthol on the nose. Sweet dense and sappy on the palate with urgent soil-driven flavors of raspberry pepper spices and minerals. Finishes long and perfumed with black fruit and crushed stone flavors that easily outlast the wine s tannins. Impressive potential. Stephen Tanzers IWC.
(25% vendange entier; 60% new oak): Bright dark red. Deep but reticent nose hints at licorice and underbrush. Then surprisingly layered and creamy in the mouth with cherry and redcurrant fruit complemented by dark Belgian chocolate and licorice. No easy sweetness here but plenty rich. Finishes with suave fine-grained tannins and some chocolatey oak that will take time to harmonize with the wine. This fruit and the Clos de Beze were picked on the first two days of October. Stephen Tanzers IWC.
Full red with ruby highlights. Slightly medicinal aromas of blackberry, black cherry and mocha. At once fine-grained and penetrating, with fruit-driven intensity. A bit simple on the front end, then builds impressively toward the back, finishing with... Stephen Tanzers IWC. A Pinot Noir wine from Burgundy in France. 2010 Bouchard Pere et Fils Pommard Pezerolles (Domaine) 750ml
<p> </p> <p>This Pinot Noir is blended with an Italian grape, Nebbiolo. The result is a raspberry nose with mild tannins.</p> <p> </p>
