Clear light red colour. Elegant nose with strawberries, some orange zest, a hint of stalky notes (i.e., a tiny bit green, but in a pleasant way), some spice, well handled oak, some flowery notes. Medium minus body with a lot of smoothness to it, notes of strawberries and cranberries, pronounced minerality, fine acidity, just a bit of spice (including pepper) and tannins, aftertaste with cranberries and mineral. Young but approachable now, developed with aeration som will surely develop with time in the cellar, 89-90(+) p. This wine definitely shows an unusually elegant side of Nuits-Saint-Georges.
Medium body. Slight bricking. Nose of rose petals and anis. Earthy flavors of cranberry, cinnamon, and raspberry. Nice complexity. Mild acidity and tannins. Very drinkable now, could age for a few more years, but not a long termer.
Popped and poured. Certainly more mature than when I tried this 18 months ago. There's now a hint of bricking at the edges. The nose is sour cherries, mint, and a hint of cinnamon. On the palate, a little harsh with acid overpowering fruit for now. Good body and structure, but lacking integration. More time is needed for this to soften, but it's starting to come around.
Lonny's btl and drinking beautifully! Ripe sweet fruit on the nose but more classic elegance on the palate. I own 3 of these and wish I had bought more! Very happy Lonny let me "check in" on this with him! When tasters talk about purity of fruit and typacity this is it! Thankfully still slightly under the radar because its NSG and not, from one of the bigger name villages.
On the lean side, fruit is light with cranberry and ground cherry, red cherry pit. A lot of savory tones of wild mushroom, leather, dark chocolate and star anise. Lacks a bit of fruit compared to chevillon 1er crus, but still good wine.
