Man mærker tydeligt det nære slægtskab med Vosne-Romanée i Nuits-Saint- Georges, som byder på en utrolig imødekommende bouquet af supermoden bærfrugt, mokka, vanille, trøffel og et hint af rose. Smagen er meget fyldig og rig på moden frugt og fine tanniner.
A discreet but not invisible application of wood can be found on the fresh mix of red and dark pinot fruit, earth, spice and overt floral nuances. This is not especially dense but I like the energy of the middle weight flavors that possess a highly attractive texture, all wrapped in a firm, nicely complex and only mildly rustic finale.
The wine is a blend of various small parcels that lie north of the village. The fairly light colour is deceptive, as the nose is infused with juicy raspberry fruit that's ample and upfront. Concentrated but fluid, it nonetheless has good weight of fruit and moderate tannins. Lifted by attractive acidity, it is relatively forward but has persistence of flavour. My guess is that it will age prettily over the medium term.
Aromas of red berries, potpourri and rich soil tones introduce the 2018 Nuits-Saint-Georges Village, a medium to full-bodied, deep and succulent wine that's elegantly fleshy and enveloping, framed by an ample chassis of ripe, powdery tannins, concluding with a long, sapid finish.
