    Good deep, bright red. Subdued red fruits, mocha, leather and minerals on the nose. The very ripe, lush palate shows an almost confectionery cherry sweetness but underlying minerality and firm acids give the wine energy. Big chewy tannins will need time to harmonize with the wine's fruit. Liger-Belair waited a few extra days to harvest this fruit, which he says was high in sugar and acidity.

    I must say that whilst I adored the 2009 Nuits Saint-Georges 1er Cru Aux Cras in its youth, it is not developing with quite the aplomb I was hoping. It has a complex bouquet with an undercurrent of savouriness, dried blood and brown spices, perhaps just a touch more advanced than I was expecting. The palate is smooth and sensual on the entry that is a doppelganger for a Vosne-Romanee. Plush and sumptuous, it is a sexy Nuits Saint Georges but I wanted something more cerebral on the finish. It is an excellent Aux Cras...but it does not quite deliver on the promise it showed 2-3 years ago. Tasted June 2015.
