I am sorry for my North American friends who clearly had off or rapidly aged bottles. This was in a perfect place, at least on opening and drinking (the last sip, after 2 hours, was flat). Silky, hints of vanilla bean (not oak), with almost no tannins, and a long finish, and a very clean mouth feel. I would not hold any longer though, and it is much less harsh than most NSG - almost Chambolle-like.
2nd of 3 bottles. I had the first bottle 2 years ago and rated it 85. The cork had a little seepage, and the wine had the brickish brown colouring starting on the edge. Some fruit, just was not that good. My experience with French Pinot's has been very unimpressive. It also hurts that I way overpaid for the wine, never again!
After my last bottle, this was really the ultimate last bottle, and again, see my previous note, a copybook Nuits St. Georges. This wine showed all the elegance and stylish power it had côte à côte with wild pig filet and lots of different kinds of mushrooms. Please bring me another half dozen!
