When I originally tasted this from bottle in early 2011 I was concerned that the sliglht finishing dryness might be an issue as the wine aged but it turns out that my fears were unfounded as this has rounded into shape very nicely. A still primary nose reflects the same reserved notes of crushed herbs, earth, dried flowers where a touch of the sauvage adds interest to the fresh and cool red pinot fruit aromas. There is good power to the concentrated and serious medium-bodied flavors that possess a textured mouth feel and find complexity on the well-balanced and lingering finish. This is still quite youthful and at this point I would advise leaving it in the cellar for at least another4 to 6 years and it wouldn't surprise me if it even could use a few more as this beauty is evolving very slowly.

The 2008 Nuits St. Georges Clos des Porrets St. Georges comes across as intensely inward and pointed in its dark fruit. The wine blossoms nicely on the mid-palate as the fruit begins to emerge. This shows terrific balance... The 2008 Nuits St. Georges Clos des Porrets St. Georges comes across as intensely inward and pointed in its dark fruit. The wine blossoms nicely on the mid-palate as the fruit begins to emerge. This shows terrific balance and energy, particularly on the long, polished finish.

17/20 Monopole. Slightly pale crimson. Sweet and easy and open. Very relaxed without being too traditional and rustic. Earthy, very confident stuff. And not expensive!

Good deep red. Sweet aromas of black cherry camphor and spices; slightly medicinal. Suppler and suaver than the Chaignots today with good fleshy black cherry flavor nicely framed by ripe acidity. The broad finish shows... Good deep red. Sweet aromas of black cherry camphor and spices; slightly medicinal. Suppler and suaver than the Chaignots today with good fleshy black cherry flavor nicely framed by ripe acidity. The broad finish shows sweet tannins and racy acidity extends the ripe fruit.
