The Perrot-Minot 2008 Nuits-St.-Georges La Richemone Vieilles Vignes delivers scents and flavors of tart but ripe blackberry Maine blueberry machine oil and licorice. Firmly tannic but also glycerin-rich and brightly juicy and with low-toned suggestions of beef marrow and dark chocolate this formidable Pinot doesn't become too austere even when its finish turns toward crushed stone cherry pit and pencil lead. In fact it's positively vibratory in its reverberative fruit-mineral-herb interplay that will leave your mouth wrung-out. I would plan to chart this wine's coarse fearlessly for 15 or more years but don't look to it for elegance or charm. (This is another site from which Perrot-Minot has on occasion bottled the oldest vines separately as an "Ultra" cuvee but not this year.) -DS

(BH90-93 points) A brooding ripe earthy and very serious nose of backward and extremely primary dark berry fruit that carries a hint of animale over to the round yet detailed middle weight plus flavors that are very Nuits... (BH90-93 points) A brooding ripe earthy and very serious nose of backward and extremely primary dark berry fruit that carries a hint of animale over to the round yet detailed middle weight plus flavors that are very Nuits in character as the precise finish is impressively long and the moderately firm tannins are mildly rustic. But it's the depth that makes this a very special wine and this should age beautifully. Outstanding.

Dark ruby red in color this is a brooding pinot with rich aromas of red currant sour cherry black pepper and hoisin sauce wrapped together with sage dried tobacco and black truffle. Medium bodied on the palate this has wonderful length and depth. The mid palate features flavors of cherry cola strawberry and fig but the star here is the wine's acidity allowing this to be enjoyed today but will be the legs for the long life this wine has ahead. To truly find this wine in its prime give it 5-7 years in the cellar and enjoy the following 25+.
