Concentrated and muscular, but balanced wine of ripe black fruits, creamy sweetness, prune, little tobacco, autumn forest and some florals. Smoothly textured, even juicy with present alcohol, integrated tannins and fine acidity. Quite a powerhouse lacking refinement.
This bottle was not as evolved as the one I had last year, although still quite good. Dark ruby color. Pleasant nose. Ripe red fruit, still quite fresh, with some remaining grip. It did not have the complexity and smoothness of last year's bottle and had room for further development.
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.

(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
