The bouquet offers up a fine constellation of red and black cherries, nutskin, venison, coffee, fresh herb tones, forest floor, a nice touch of botanicals and a topnote of charred wood. On the palate the wine is pure, full- bodied, complex and really rock solid at the core for an ’07, with moderate tannins, fine acids and lovely focus and balance on the long and classy finish. This is getting close to blossoming and should cruise along very well indeed for at least a quarter of a century after reaching its plateau of maturity.

Black raspberry dark chocolate iron smoke and menthol on the rather brooding nose. Then silky ripe and deep with lovely inner-mouth aromatic character for this wine at this early stage. At once supple and serious offering suave flavors of dark fruits and menthol and finishing with fairly powerful but nicely ripe tannins. Possesses all of the Nuits food groups. This will need five or six years of cellaring.

The barest trace of wood influence highlights a brooding and backward yet exceptionally fresh and classic nose of very ripe dark berry fruits earth and game notes that also infuse the rich full-bodied and broad-shouldered... The barest trace of wood influence highlights a brooding and backward yet exceptionally fresh and classic nose of very ripe dark berry fruits earth and game notes that also infuse the rich full-bodied and broad-shouldered flavors that are quite powerful while sporting outstanding mid-palate concentration and length. This is bigger than its '08 counterpart though while it's certainly formidable it's not nearly as big as some vintages of Gouges Vaucrains where it can be a true beast. Still this is outstanding for its balance length and sense of harmony.

Marked by blackberry black currant and iron notes this muscular red offers both sweet fruit and a solid structure. Still a bit tight on the finish which lingers in the minerally earthy tones. Best from 2012 through 2022... Marked by blackberry black currant and iron notes this muscular red offers both sweet fruit and a solid structure.
