2009 Michelot Alain, Nuits St.Georges Les ChaignotsDec. 2011
Rather deep colour. Ooh – now that’s nice – beautiful fruit here, maybe even a hint of gooseberry. Full in the mouth, with a not too generous helping of tannin plus very pretty fruit that seems a mirror of that on the nose. Simply a very tasty wine indeed.
2007 Potel Nicolas, Nuits St.Georges Les ChaignotsJul. 2009
Deep, ripe and very pretty fruit edged by slight torrefaction. Sweet and supple, showing good acidity to balance. The tannin is more obvious than with the villages bottles – but they are well under control. Very good.
2006 Chevillon Robert, Nuits St.Georges Les ChaignotsApr. 2009
Medium. medium-plus colour. A very nice nose, shaded a little more to darker fruit than was the case for the villages. Ripe, very tasty fruit sits with good acidity and a grainy tannin. A little licorice flavour and good length. This is very nice.
2004 Mugneret Dr Georges, Nuits St.Georges Les ChaignotsApr. 2007
Darker than the Gevrey that preceded it, and a shade lighter than the Vosne that preceded that. The nose is deep and dark, initially just a little monolithic, slowly it gives a peek of black cherry, cream, and faint coffee mixed with smoke. Seems to fill the mouth and has a super intensity to the mid-palate. Powerful and mouthwatering this shows a higher level of tannin than the Gevrey and it’s perceptibly grainier too – though certainly not misbehaved – it’s very well covered. The finish is longer with an edge of cream to the fine burst fruit. A super NSG.
2001 Mugneret Dr Georges, Nuits St.Georges Les ChaignotsDec. 2006
Medium-plus colour. Drunk directly after the l’Arlot Nuits (Les Fôrets); the nose is instantly more concentrated and fruit driven, edged with a Vosne-like spicyness. Again the palate is more fruit-driven and shows a higher level of tannins, but they are finer cut. A good finish too. Despite sharing a Nuits 1er cru label, this is a totally different wine to the l’Arlot, each will have their own followers. Today I would choose the aromatics of the l’Arlot and the palate of the Mugneret!

Medium ruby red, still cherry red at the rim. The nose has reticent but very pure cherry. Gorgeously smooth palate with a very sneaky, creamy red fruit length. The acidity is fine and the tannins are first class. Not many words to describe a super Nuits – but I made another order!
