(from 4 different parcels in Brochon) A touch of wood spice frames moderately more elegant and certainly more expressive earth, and slightly gamy nose featuring crushed red and black pinot fruit aromas plus a trace of minerality that continues onto the rich, sweet and full-bodied flavors that are detailed and finely textured. This is really quite nicely balanced and displays virtually none of the rusticity that the appellation typically does. Impressively good juice for its level and also highly recommended.

($32-$40) Ruby-red. Ripe aromas of blackberry, smoked meat and licorice pastille. Juicy and vibrant, with rather powerful dark fruit flavors for the appellation. Offers impressive concentration and volume, not to mention very good definition. The sturdy, medicinal finish features substantial ripe tannins.

A 2005 Cotes de Nuits-Villages offers compressed, concentrated bitter but ripe black fruit with hints of game and licorice, juicy refreshment for all of its density, and both meaty and mineral salt finishing notes. It is hard to imagine getting much more wine from this appellation.
