A new acquisition; one long, narrow parcel of very old vines. Very heady – more fruit than Nuits energy on the nose. Smooth – as though its edges have been filed down. Dry end.
Anticipated maturity: 2024-2034
Bright red with ruby tones. Very ripe, dark aromas of black cherry, cassis and blueberry, with a violet note emerging with air. Concentrated and thick, with its flavors of blackberry, violet pastille and Sen-Sen lifted by a peppery quality. I find this more harmonious than the 2016 version, and showing much deeper fruit than a sample I tasted from barrel in late 2016.
Anticipated maturity: 2023-2031

The 2015 Nuits St Georges les Poisets, from a parcel purchased by the domaine in 2010, has a floral bouquet with subtle limestone scents emerging through the cassis and black cherry fruit. There is something very “Vosne” in style here. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp acidity, a little gritty on the entry, but then it smooths out towards the finish with black cherries, a touch of blueberry and a dash of spice. It feels composed and harmonious, a wine that should give 10+ years of pleasure.
Anticipated maturity: 2019-2032
