Contrary to many wine growing regions, one of the particularities of Burgundy is the complete lack of the mixing of different grape varieties. There are two main varieties in Burgundy : Pinot Noir for the red wines; Chardonnay for the white wines. The reputation of the Grands Vins fins de Bourgogne is based on two varieties alone : Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. As early as 1866, Dr Jules Guyot in his book on viticulture of the centre north of France, wrote that: " the essence of the fine wines of the Côte d'Or, is the grape variety, the Pineau Noir or Noirien for the red wines; the Pineau Blanc or Chardenet for the white wines ".

Sweet and sappy on the nose with very spicy fruit. Still a bit rigid in the mouth with good acids and just a touch of tannin sticking out. Still youthful but not particularly exciting. 87pts

Brownish color. Very light color, red cherries, acidic. Light sweetness, strawberry. Still age potential. Food wine. Light tannin. Light chocolate. $28.Update: This might have been the Rollin Père.

popped and poured. lovely white gold color. nose had mint, white peach and grapefruit with some grass as well- a bit tight on the palate with excellent minerality, real elegance and a fantastic frame. I'd leave it alone for 5-8 years.
