"A discreet touch of wood frames the impressively complex plum, cassis and earth aromas. There is good volume and concentration to the delicious and vibrant flavors that possess very good mid-palate concentration as well as fine length on the palate coating finish. Lovely quality and overall this is a fine Nuits villages."

"Bright, dark red. Sappy aromas of blueberry, dark plum, menthol and bitter chocolate, plus a hint of fresh blood; one can sense the tiny millerandé berries here. Then juicy and imploded in the mouth, and less supple and sweet than the foregoing Vosne samples. This only finished its malo in mid-September and is dominated today by its firm tannic spine. "
