This was surprisingly good considering the unusual characteristics of the vintage. A bit on the pale side, but the nose was fragrant with some floral overtones. On the palate, the wine was very smooth, with nice complexity and a long finish. It has really evolved into a wonderful mature burgundy. It is drinking well now.
A minty nose, a bit of resin too, full round and plush on the palate, some sweetness, some sap, quite voluptuous in fact. There's tannin there, but it's completely buffered. Much plumper than a normal forêts, but still very attractive

(l'Arlot Nuits St.Georges Clos des FŰrets St.Georges) Medium-plus cherry-red. A little tighter, more linear and darker shaded than the l'Arlot. Lots of action on the palate, bulkier with more tannin, brighter fruit in the background. Again the weight of dry extract on the finish. A good wine, but I still prefer the l'Arlot in this vintage
