“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 tends four separate parcels in this larger grand cru vineyard, two-thirds of which hail from Charmes proper; the rest from Mazoyères-Chambertin. Fermented on indigenous yeasts in tank; aged in mostly older French oak barrels for 18 months (no more than 15% new wood). Bottled unfined and unfiltered. Raphet Burgundy is 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." The Allen Mweadows, Burghound, review below is for the same vintage, non-"unique" labeled.
