Tasting Notes

From vines of more than 50 years of age, in one of the very best sites in Nuits, there is fluidity and elegance to this wine, with finely detailed tannins and a fresh, playful side. The length is admirable, with no hint of heaviness on display. Drink from 2016.

Reviews & Scores

A pungently earthy mélange of red currant, wild dark berries and spice hints merges into extract-rich, intense and palate coating medium-bodied flavors that are supported by firm but not hard tannins that evidence mild rusticity. There is very good power and excellent length with sufficient structure as to probably require up to a decade to resolve it. A classic Nuits.
89-92 Points, Allen Meadows

Bright full red. Reticent aromas of redcurrant and leather. Dense, sweet and sappy but youthfully imploded, hinting at black cherry and red and darker berries. Finishes with sweeter tannins and more length than the Arnoux village offerings.
90-92 Points, Stephen Tanzer
