International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 137

Bright ruby-red. Knockout nose melds flowers, minerals, smoke, musky game and a primary berry element like crushed grapes. Superrich and silky, with an exhilarating tangy quality and the balance and length of a grand cru. Subtle smoky nuances on the very long finish, which features lush, thoroughly buffered tannins. This wine was fermented in wood vats with 20% whole clusters (as was the Echezeaux and Latricieres-Chambertin) and aged in 40% new oak (compared to 50% for most of the other premier crus here).

Thanos Trust Rating: 97 Tasted On: 11/15/2010 Drink Dates: 2016-2016

Tasting note: The most elegant of these Nuits 1ers with mild wood influence setting off the pure and refined blend of red berry, plum, violets and subtle anise and clove notes introducing serious and concentrated medium full-bodied flavors supported by dense but fine tannins on the hugely long and explosive finish. This is a terrific effort that knocks on the door of grand cru quality and it should age like one too. Tasted: Jan 01, 2008 Score: 91-93 Drink: 2016+ - Comments: Sweet spot Outstanding
