The Wine Front – A completely different expression as there is a bit less aromatic elegance but more complexity to the layered and discreetly earthy red berry fruit aromas that precede the equally stony and beautifully detailed middle weight flavors that offer excellent intensity but the primary structural difference between this and the Baudes is the longer finish. Lovely and harmonious with very ripe phenolics that should permit this to age very well. Outstanding. 92/2018+ Burghound

Robert Parker/Wine Advocate – The 2010 Morey St. Denis Les Millandes is a big, broad-shouldered wine graced with tremendous depth in its fruit. Dark cherries, menthol, spices and new leather are some of the many notes that are woven into the fabric of this beautifully balanced wine. Firm tannins support the fruit all the way through to the virile, intense finish. This is a great showing. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2030.

Wines from Burgundy

A legendary wine region setting the benchmark for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay worldwide. In the Jurassic time period, the area was part of a vast, tropical sea. Over hundreds of millions of years, the seabed transformed into various layers of limestone, sandstone and clay soils that have entrapped the fossils of ancient sea creatures. These soils are the secret behind the zesty minerality that Burgundy wines are famous for.

Burgundy is probably the most terroir-centric wine region in France. Huge emphasis is placed on the specific vineyard, soil type, elevation, and angle of slope where the wines were made. This is reflected on the wine's labels where appellations are more prominently displayed compared to the producers’ names.

The most prestigious wines of the region come from a long and narrow escarpment called the Côte d'Or split into the Côte de Nuits to the north and the Côte de Beaune to the south. Côte de Nuits produces many of the world’s finest Pinot Noir’s, all but one of Burgundy’s red Grand Crus are made in this area. Whilst interestingly, the opposite is true for the Côte de Beaune where all but one of the Chardonnay Grand Crus are made. From this information it may seem you should be buying a Pinot from the North and Chardonnay from the south, that is only true for the pinnacle of Burgundian wines. Both outstanding reds and whites are produced throughout the Côte d'Or.

In Burgundy, they use a wine quality tier system that goes:
Grand Crus 1.4% of total production
Premier (1er) Crus 10.2% of total production
Appellations Villages 37.3% of total production
Appellations Regionales 51.1% of total production

When one refers to “Burgundy wines” they are usually talking about those produced in and around the Côte d'Or. While the Chardonnay’s from Chablis and the Gamay’s from Beaujolais are formally apart of the Burgundy wine region, those subregions are generally referred to by their own names rather than being considered “Burgundy wines”.
