2008 Chauvenet Jean, Nuits St.Georges Les BousselotsDec. 2010
The nose delivers dark aromas, accented with coffee. Lots and lots of fine tannin but balanced by sweet, fresh, dark fruit in the mid-palate, though the fruit decays faster than the tannin so it’s the predominant finishing experience – I expect they will slowly fade to bring better finishing balance though.

2006 Chauvenet Jean, Nuits St.Georges Les BousselotsApr. 2009
Deep colour. High-toned, slightly estery aromas. Wow – now that’s astringent – like sifting sand between your teeth. Good width of flavour but I find the flavour fading quite quickly. This is a toughie that will need some cellar time.
2007 Chevillon-Chezeaux, Nuits St.Georges Les BousselotsApr. 2009
A slightly deeper cherry-red colour. A core of pure cherry fruit. More tannin, more masculine in stance and very nice fruit. Fine, barrel inflected length.
2003 Remoriquet Henri & Gilles, Nuits St.Georges Les BousselotsApr. 2009
A deep and impressively young colour – still some purple when many from the vintage are already browning! Very tight but nice fresh fruit aromas. A mouthful of width and plenty of tannin. The fruit is ripe though not obviously from 2003. I’m very impressed by this.
