RP 95
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2002 Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Aux Brûlées is a wine that I have tasted three or four times, although nothing quite matches this astonishing showing. It has an outstanding bouquet with red fruit, truffle, dried blood and minerals--very typical of this vineyard and just an absolute joy. The palate is supremely well focused with a killer line of acidity, wondrous tension, utterly complex with truffle and almost an animally note on the sustained finish that fans out with such confidence and brio. This just has that touch of magic. Tasted October 2016.
WS 92
Wine Spectator
Very fragrant and beguiling for its rose, berry, spice and mineral aromas and flavors. It has intensity and depth, with a firm, well-integrated structure. Very elegant and silky, with a long, sweet fruit aftertaste. Drink now through 2018.

Burghound.com
Initially the nose displays some mild reduction that is replaced relatively quickly with ripe yet fresh and very spicy dark berry fruit and earth-suffused aromas. There is good energy and ample minerality to the medium-bodied flavors that culminate in a delicious if ever-so-slightly firm and tangy finish. While this could certainly be enjoyed now, to my taste this is not quite ready as it is definitely evolving more slowly than I originally envisioned when I first tasted it from cask.

Celebrated as some of the best wine in the universe, red wine from Burgundy, otherwise known as red Burgundy, is Pinot noir. In fact Burgundy is the birthplace of Pinot noir and the source of the planet’s most sensual, delicate, valuable and sought-after Pinot noir wines.

Understanding and enjoying red Burgundy can stay simple, with a basic knowledge of its subregions, become more intricate by dialing down to the villages and vineyards or become a life-long passion, exploring climats (plots of vines), vintages and the post French Revolution land ownership laws. In any case, a fine red Burgundy will display refined nuances of black currant, red fruit, earth, spice, alluring floral aromatics and have great elegance, complexity and longevity.

Most famous, praised and collected of Burgunday are those from the Côte d'Or. Hundreds of millions of years ago, the area now called Côte d'Or was under a warm ocean whose sea floor has, over time, shifted and decomposed into various layers of limestone, sandstone and clay interspersed with ancient fossilized sea creatures. This is what is referred to as the famous escarpment upon which all of the highly sought-after Grands Crus and Premiers Crus vineyards can be found. In other words, from north to south, the best vineyards of Gevrey-Chambertin, Morey-St-Denis, Chambolle-Musigny, Vougeot, Vosne-Romanée, Flagey-Echezeaux, Nuits-St-Georges, Aloxe-Corton, Pommard and Volnay follow the path of this ancient sea bed.
