"Cuvée Unique” is an exclusive bottling for North Berkeley Imports, as they explain, "With the help of winemaker Gérard Raphet, North Berkeley Imports selects certain complete barrels of wine to import under the exclusive label, 'Cuvée Unique.'" Raphet’s few rows of vines in Les Millandes are upslope and touch the grand cru of Clos de la Roche. A savory example of Burgundy, a classic ‘Millandes’ will have expressive notes of smoked meat, spice and black fruit. As importer North Berkely imports describes Raphet wines, "are handmade from field to bottle, with a rhythm and method that hasn’t changed in four generations. Vines are on average very old, with many vines over 100 years. Harvest is done by hand, and grapes are fermented on indigenous yeasts in tank and then aged for some 18 months in a mix of new and older French oak barrels. Wines are bottled unfined and unfiltered."
