Needed a good 2 hour decant and time to come to room/drinking temp from cellar. Balanced and solid cherry fruits with nice expression. Will actually benefit from a few more years in the cave as still a bit tart/rough on finish.
Very impressive. Needed about an hour to open fully. Great nose, smokey, tart red berries along with a menthol side, hint of licorice. The palate is consistent with the nose, the fruit very pure and precise. Great balance, deep, expressive and long yet quite subtle and with much finesse. Very satisfying and has many more years of life.
Decanted an hour. This is the first bottle I opened from 2005 and it is still wound tight. A nice wine, but needs more cellaring for tannins to resolve. Fruit is still hiding. On the nose, concentrated cherries. Flavors of minerals, mature red fruits, floral with forest and bramble in the background. Short finish. Hopeful for improvement over the next couple years.

(Bouchard Père et Fils Nuits St.Georges Clos St.Marc) Medium-plus cherry-red colour. The nose starts with a forward blast of oaky and mineral tones. Time in the glass gives red fruit and a coffee, mocha-tinged almost texturally furry nose - it just shades more blue with time, and it never stops improving. The palate is muscular though the tannin is buried by the concentration, but what is discernible is finely textured. Excellent acidity with good dimension in the mid-palate. The finish has decent length but is currently one-dimensional. It’s an excellent Nuits - no question, approaching grand cru
