Community Tasting Note

  • mmcdds Likes this wine: 91 points

    May 11, 2015 - This has a very pretty nose of red fruit, earth and spice, all of which carry over to the fairly forward, mid weight palate that's showing really good depth for a village nuits. There's still some chalky tannin on the longish finish, but overall, this is drinking very well with just an hour or so of air.

    Revisited at about 4 hours and this was really singing.

  • mmcdds commented:

    7/5/16, 2:08 PM - That was May of last year and I haven't tasted it since, but I suspect 4 hours would still be ok. I would actually recommend decanting it and then tasting it at intervals, maybe every 1/2 hour or so, until you find when its drinking the best.

  • mmcdds commented:

    7/5/16, 2:38 PM - I would too. Good luck and let me know how it was.
