2006 Rodet Antonin, Nuits St.Georges Clos du ThoreyApr. 2009
A dark, spicy nose that’s set against high-toned, focused fruit. Plenty of tannin, but there’s vigour and flavour here – I like this a lot.
1998 Thomas-Moillard, Nuits St.Georges Clos du ThoreyApr. 2008
A wide nose of nicely maturing aromas mixed with earth. The palate is lithe, linear and of moderate length. It’s clean and quite interesting.
2003 Thomas Charles, Nuits St.Georges Clos du ThoreyJul. 2006
Medium-plus cherry-red. A wide and bright fruity nose supported by an earthy undercurrent. The palate is bold and concentrated with plenty of tannin that ends with a twist of bitterness. Good mid-palate density, and the fruit is not so bad. Almost good – particularly if you have the patience to leave this in the cellar for the next 5+ years.
1995 Thomas-Moillard, Nuits St.Georges Clos du ThoreyMar. 2004
A medium-plus ruby core fading only very slightly. The nose shows high tones and red raspberry/strawberry confiture, not bad at all. Good acidity and prominent grainy tannins. Big fruit and a touch of astringency on the finish. To be honest this is a bit unruly, perhaps it will get better with time. Young but needs to show a bit more class.
1997 Thomas Charles, Nuits St.Georges Clos du ThoreyNov. 2003
Medium depth colour – just starting to become ruby. High toned fruit – shaded to red – with a slightly roast character. Good attack on the palate, nice fruit and grainy tannins though I find the acidity a little harsh. Still needs time to settle down, but there’s very good length. Should be good.
