Selected off the wine list at The Bistro, l'Hotel de Beaune. Darker ruby color. Intense, high-pitched florals on the nose, joined by scents of violets, raspberry, and earth. Smoothly-coiled, elegant palate of stemmy cherry, black raspberry, and anise, ending with a flourish of spice and minerals. Nice acidity and structured tannins softened by layers of fruit. Finish of red fruits and iron. Really lovely.
Classy Nuits; pure black minerality with notes of asian spice and cedar, delicious but still very primary - this wine needs time. In a few years when the wood has fully absorbed and the palate has fanned out, this will be a stunner. Great stuff.
medium ruby. At first lots of Vosne-like spice, well integrated wood, and deep pinot fruit. On the palate at first asian spice and perfume, with beautiful texture and sap. this is rich and deep with great balance, with a supple and complicated beguiling mouthfeel. With air time, it starts to get a bit more stern, almost morphing from Vosne to NSG, becoming more earthy and muscled. It makes sense this is on the Vosne side of NSG. A beautiful, complicated rich and deft wine. Very long. Beautiful. 92 pts
