($182) Bright red-ruby. Cool, slightly inky aromas of blackberry liqueur and black cherry; slightly high-toned. Offers powerful black cherry, crushed berry and mineral flavors sexed up by the uncanny sweetness of the vintage. Very long and strong on the end, but the substantial tannins are supple. Here's a vintage in which this wine is markedly different from the rest of the cellar, and clearly identifiable as coming from Nuits-Saint-Georges.

Much more raw than the 2004. Difficult to penetrate on the nose but very flattering and mild and almost malty on the palate. Lots of lively fruit with real direction and verve. Lots of extract. Very long. Promises very well for the future. Such persistence!

Still very primary. deep, ripe pinot fruit on the nose, with a touch of earth. long finish. will be interesting to see how this develops in the cellar, its really quite delicious now.

This has tasty dark pinot fruit and lots of it. The wood is nicely balanced with the fruit and the wine hs good acidity and a long dry finsih. Still young but it promises to be a blockbuster as it ages.
