Thursday, February 24, 2005 - Wow this is not nearly ready.
The nose is fairly dumb but with a wonderful earthy hint. Really tightly wound but with a beautiful precision and elegance - not a burly Nuits character at all, especially considering its Les Cailles, which has a tendency to turn out pretty masculine wines. The palate is closed but the tannins are really refined and I'm blown away by its texture and balance, can't wait for the fruit to come out of its shell. I won't be going back to this for a couple of years at least.
