Last tasted this about 1 1/2 years ago and found it to be extraordinary, now 2 out of the 3 bottles that I opened tonight were premoxed. I wish I had drunk them all last year. The 3rd bottle is ok but on the decline. I have 2 left that I think I'll be opening in the very near future. Bummer!

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.
