2001 Gros Michel, Nuits St.Georges 1er CruApr. 2011
A blend of Murgers and Vignes Rondes. There’s a layer of sous-bois to get through but below is good supporting fruit. In the mouth that fruit is ripe and sweet – nicely concentrated too. Tarry, staining flavours that are very long indeed. This needs a couple more years in the cellar but it’s frankly excellent.
2002 l'Arlot, Nuits St.Georges 1er CruApr. 2009
Medium, medium-pale colour. Slightly smokey aromas followed by jammy elements. Medium weight and only late appearing tannins. Subtle length makes this wine quite nice.
2003 Rodet Antonin, Nuits St.Georges 1er CruApr. 2009
The nose is slightly diffuse, a little spicy and shows traces of coffee. In the mouth this shows high-toned fruit, reasonable acidity and slightly forward, though not astringent, tannin. This finishes well but doesn’t seem all that ‘together’ despite decent ‘parts’.
