Fleshy, chunky, a little clumsy. Darker fruit than the Volnays with some earth and leather so it makes sense that this is the NSG, but without the sophistication and spice of the Vosne end or the depth and class of the southern end so guessed that this would be from near the village/Premeux-Prissey. Right! Much better value out there for NSG.
Complex nose that hints of lavender and watermelon. Quite tannic on the palate, with a somewhat jammy red berry character developing soon after. Notes of warm baking spice throughout. Fairly long finish. Has lots of potential but needs perhaps 10 years in the cellar.
Great stuff. Much lighter and more delicate than I'd expect from Nuits; pale in appearance and very red fruited with fragrant herbal, floral and slightly spicy/stemmy accents framing the fruit. There's a wonderful sense of lightness and elegance here, bright acids keeping this perfectly balanced and it's really fantastic wine.
