    August 13, 2018 - Elected to decant as this was a bit closed. After almost 3 hours the dark berry fruit, blood and pepper (?) were evident. Palate is pretty balanced with medium+ fruit weight, a pretty sizable dose of gritty tannin and balancing acidity. Work well with pork chops, carmelized peaches and lemon/garlic/rosemary as both the tannin and acid were good offsets to the meat and sweetness.

    November 9, 2013 - The 2005 Domaine Daniel Rion et Fils Nuits St. Georges Vieilles Vignes is dark ruby in colour with a nose of rustic iron that floods over its faint cherries and a slight hint of noticeable spice. A very rustic entry of iron and rust that lasts from mid to end palate. There's some sort of underlying wet rocks as well that keeps the wine rather fresh in style. Quite a constant structure that last throughout. Back end acidity kicks in a little bit that might reminds one of sour cherries before a the rising alcohol heat. Medium (-) finish.

    August 2, 2013 - I was really curious how this wine was going to turn out. Excellent pedigree from a great vintage. Roasted a chicken and it was scrumptious. This wine was wonderful with the dish. Probably would have benefited from another year or two of cell earring. Poured into a glass through an aerator, it first exhibited more tannin than I expected. However, as dinner was leisurely, an hour later, the wined smoothed out into an elegant mouthful of cherries and plums. Light to medium bodied with a pretty, sweet bouquet and a long complex finish. A real Burgundy thoroughbred.

    February 21, 2012 - drunk alongside the Grand Vignes from 2005 this was sharper both in terms of a slighly acidic edge and distinct tannins - after a hour in the glass it mellowed a bit but I preferred the GV

    June 12, 2009 - earthy red currants, black cherries and a bit of earth. quite tight and rustic. Fairly devoid of fruit and complexity so I don't know how well this will hold up over the next few years.
