Nose of dark red fruit, flowers (smells like roses with pollin), palate of brooding fruits up front, some spice, finishes with strawberry, nice acidity and grip. Savory herbal notes throughout-- as one taster notes-- Burgundy meets CdP. In a nice drinking window now.
Medium red with mild to moderate bricking. Low toned, and definitely at the riper end of the spectrum, but becomes more defined with air. What seems to be volatility at first later becomes a saline, ocean sort of character later on. The earth here, which is wet sand-like without much organic funk, is subtle and almost subsumed by the broody fruit, but there's also a teeny bit of animal stuff as well as flowery notes. Dry attack that quickly transitions into a big and yummy midpalate with an abundance of chewy, chunky fruit but some welcome lift late. You get the sense that the serious nuits st georges tannic structure has integrated nicely with age.
