    ($115) Good deep red. Fresh aromas of red cherry, raspberry, rose petal and sweet oak. Lush, smooth and sweet, with fresh fruit nicely framed by sound acidity. There's plenty of underlying structure here, but the tannins are ripe and soft, and this lush, long wine seems harmonious from the start. A superb village wine.

    A pungent nose of reduction and wood spice though the oak is less apparent on the dusty, intense and round flavors that are mouth coating, delicious and sweet, underpinned by relatively fine tannins and plenty of finishing power. By the usual standards of this wine, it's exceptionally impressive, indeed perhaps the best I have ever seen and it's particularly well balanced.

    Entering the realm of premier crus (and passing from one-third to 50% new wood), Lachaux's 2005 Nuits-St.-Georges Les Proces (from a tiny cru just southwest of town) offers ripe black cherry tinged with sweet spices and hints of barrel in the nose. On the palate, it reveals juicy refinement, creaminess, restrained vanillin, smoke and oak spice, brothy, stock-pot meatiness, and bitter-sweet black fruits. Notes of spinach, toasted nuts and nutmeg further inform a fundamentally bitter-sweet (and perhaps as yet not entirely knitted) finish.

    Smoky, super-ripe black fruits. Lots of acidity. Quite nervy. Very structured. Should not disappoint.
