Starts off very, very earthy, somewhat tough and unyielding (on a pop 'n pour). With a few hours in the glass it unfolds to reveal some nice red fruit in a somewhat (for Nuits) elegant style, along with a healthy dose of spice. I've really enjoyed the recent '08 Burgundies I've tried, and to my palate they seem to have good potential.
Light red, see through, pale rim; slightly underripe nose, rose, slight confected strawberry, roasted cherry; savory, pure pinot with high acid, soft even though this needed 2 hours of air to open up- really tight initially, also had some natural spice and clay; plain style. Some may find this boring, but it can be hard to find wine well made like this.
