97 nuits and vosne

1997 Robert Chevillon, Nuits St.Georges 1er Les Vaucrainstry to find this wine...
Plenty of oak still on a nose that narrowly avoids reduction. Where the aromatics don’t involve, the palate delivers more; good dimension set against a furry tannin. Overall this is almost good but no more.
Rebuy – No
1997 Jean Tardy, Nuits St.Georges 1er Les Boudotstry to find this wine...
The nose has the 97 sweetness though unusually it’s coupled with a rather herby presentation but nice high-toned red fruits too. Actually quite appealing. The palate was grainy and red – I didn’t really think of much more to say…
Rebuy – No
1997 Daniel Rion, Vosne-Romanéetry to find this wine...
It’s a nice nose of dark fruit, ripe, but not overly so. The palate has real depth, length and good balance too. I rather liked it and would buy at a decent price.
Rebuy – Yes
1997 AF Gros & François Parent, Vosne-Romanée 1er Aux Réastry to find this wine...
Understated nose that slowly becomes redder and quite excellent. The palate is furry, slightly prickly and comparitively disappointing.
Rebuy – No
1997 Gérard Mugneret, Vosne-Romanée 1er Les Bruléestry to find this wine...
High-toned nose, understated but very nice. The palate is rather linear, but lots of dimension and almost good length. It’s actually almost good.
Rebuy – Maybe
As noted, the Cathiard is also a rebuy from Vosne.
