Natalie's Score: 90/100

Vintages Wine Panel: Located at the southern tip of the Côte de Beaune, Santenay traditionally produces scented and supple Pinot Noir. Based on brown calcarerous soils, with an ideal southeastern-facing exposure, Clos Rousseau Premier Cru is slightly more powerful, denser and more vigorous than the village wines. My note: An intensely aromatic red with beetroot and raspberry notes.

Pinot Noir food pairings: Asian-glazed chicken, brie de Meaux.

Dan Trcka Wine Blogger rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

This medium bodied Pinot Noir from the 2005 1er CRU is nicely aromatic, INTEGRATED to aged and with notes of red currant, cherry, blackberry, leather, intense pine and vanilla. It is tannic (decant for 1 hour) with a nice, long finish. It can age another 5 to 10 years. My impression: BEAUTIFUL, 91 pts - too bad this wine is no longer sold, I would buy half a case. Tasted in Aug/10 during French wine tasting and the consensus was that it was the best wine tasted.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
