Burghound 93:Pretty and beautifully layered aromas of various ripe and fresh wild red berries, spice and newly turned earth are trimmed in just enough wood to notice. The solidly dense and intense medium-bodied flavors possess a sleek mouthfeel while exhibiting fine length on the overtly austere finale where a touch of warmth slowly emerges. This compact and tightly wound effort will need at least a few years of forbearance.” -Allen Meadows, Burghound

Importer’s Notes: “Raphet wines are a Burgundy lover’s Burgundy.  While the wine’s color in the glass is a delicate ruby, aromas and flavors surprise with their forceful intensity.  This contrast often catches the uninitiated off guard, yet it is part of the seduction of these limited and highly sought-after wines. Raphet Burgundy is handmade from field to bottle, with a rhythm and method that hasn’t changed in more than four generations.  Pinot Noir vines at the estate are on average very old, with many surpassing 100 years.  North Berkeley Imports selects individual barrels of wine to import exclusively under our own label, “Cuvée Unique.” These wines, unlike the estate’s regular wines, are bottled unfined and unfiltered.
