This wine has evolved nicely. Red cherry, fir, menthol, rose petals, and prunes on the nose -- an odd combo but it's all there and it works. Dark cherries and red plums on the palate with a touch of wood. Great mouthfeel. The last few bottles had been disappointing but not this one. It certainly has put on some weight over the last year or so. Definitely more Nuits in character than Vosne, which makes sense based on its proximity to the Nuit border for those keeping track.
Dilute and simple, very short. Some pretty red fruit and not much else. A chemical tone developed with air, and the fruit seemed underripe although it did not have the green pine aromas common to underripe piont noir. Very disappointing.
