Goedhuis, December 2017
The most northerly of Nuits St Georges’s premiers crus neighbouring Vosne Romanée’s Aux Malconsorts. This is a supreme display of tannin management – they are abundant and yet so fine, providing rich support and savoury structure to the wine’s body of spiced dark fruits.

Here too there is whiff of volatile acidity to the menthol-suffused nose of red and dark cherry, earth and a hint of spice. There is good volume to the delicious and nicely delineated flavors though the finish is slightly lean and a bit clipped. While it's possible that this may just be in a funky stage, it would be fair to describe this as awkward today. Drink 2028+

Healthy dark red. Strong musky reduction to the aromas of black raspberry and graphite. Dense and thick but vibrant in the mouth, conveying superb sweetness and creaminess to its flavors of dark fruits and bitter chocolate. Here the stem element is subtle and enlivening. Finishes seriously rich and long, with plush tannins. A superb Vosne-side Nuits Saint-Georges in the making.

Not yet racked. Some new oak and some whole bunch. Light, energetic and with lots of drive. Masses of ripe red cherry fruit. Pure and sweet. Long. Drink 2021-2029
