(Potel Nicolas Chambolle-Musigny) Medium-plus cherry red. The nose starts a little oaky, mostly dispersing to show high toned red fruit against the milder oak. The fruit becomes more and more intense as the wine warms in the glass and takes on a coffee edge. In the mouth the oak is bordering on intrusive giving a slight grain to the sweet palate, but the fruit and acidity balance make this wine just so succulent. Still a little oaky bitterness on the finish. I don't think Nicolas often overdoes the oak, and this wine is so close to being an excellent villages but I'm not sure if the wood or the wine will be the winner.
