A moderately exotic and phenolic nose (think olive oil nuances) displays notes of mandarin orange, pekoe tea, apple and plenty of floral elements. The rich, full-bodied and solidly constituted flavors possess buckets of sappy dry extract that confers an almost chewy texture on the strikingly persistent finish.

Allen Meadows, June 2018

About is the result of a nearly lifelong passion for the wines of Burgundy. For more than 30 years, I have been collecting the wines and visiting the region. Each year I spend nearly five months visiting, researching, tasting, exploring and evaluating. Burgundy is my obsession really. Expanding on my coverage of the coveted pinot noir grape, each issue provides continuous coverage of both Oregon and California pinot noir, with rotating coverage of Champagne and occasional special reports from other pinot producing regions.
