Very good and very Nuits-like wine; absolutely showing the 2003 power and wild character, but also with sufficiant elegance to be in balance. The colour is deep young red, the nose pure pinot with dept and the taste is round, round and again round with lots of ripe tannins. I advice drinking this wine at 15/16° (starting) to support the freshness in the bouquet and to suppress the alcohol if necessary/wanted.
I think this is going to warrant a higher score, but this is still too early for this wine. After 2 hours it opened very nicely,but still very astringent and tannic, which Ido not think comes from the vintage. Wait another few years to try more.
