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 ".

Like the Bèze, this is stunningly complex with ripe, layered and unusually expressive red berry fruit aromas that are cool and airy with background notes of cassis liqueur, all trimmed in a subtle touch of wood that gives way to the explosive, powerful, and seriously concentrated big-bodied and mineral-infused flavors that possess fine detail and almost painful intensity on the reserved, firm and youthfully austere finish that is hugely long. This is balanced and brooding yet quite stylish. Burghound.com, Issue Apr 1, 2009, Allen Meadows
