2009 Lécheneaut (Philippe et Vincent), Nuits St.Georges Les DamodesNov. 2011
Two thirds of the grapes come from the 1er cru part of the vineyard. High tones and very modest oak notes overlaid by warm, red fruit. Round, mouth-filling and rather understated velvet tannin – very good width to the flavour. A good lingering finish that might have been even better with just an ounce more acidity – good wine though.
2008 Vougeraie, Nuits St.Georges Les DamodesMar. 2011
More herbs and red fruit with a subtle spice and mint, eventually floral too. Narrower – seems less impressive than the Vougeot but there is plenty of complexity.
2008 Chauvenet Jean, Nuits St.Georges Les DamodesDec. 2010
Medium, medium-plus colour. A beautiful nose of warm, sweet dark fruit. Full and round with more sweet dark fruit, hints of licorice – lovely flavours that leach across the palate and into the finish. Despite the power there is some delicacy of delivery.

2006 Remoriquet Henri & Gilles, Nuits St.Georges Les DamodesApr. 2009
Medium, medium-plus colour. The nose is bright with polished, slightly darker fruit – wide but perhaps less deep than the ‘Allots’. More intensity, more tannin and more flavour. Harder to drink now, but this is a very good wine.
2006 Lécheneaut (Philippe et Vincent), Nuits St.Georges Les DamodesDec. 2008
Medium-plus cherry-red colour. Braod and high-toned aromas. It’s a mouth-filling wine – you know it’s there! Structured but balanced, with a dark personality. Quite impressive.
2006 Potel Nicolas, Nuits St.Georges Les DamodesApr. 2008
Seems a ‘younger’ less formed nose. There is a small step-up in concentration versus the Murguers. This expands very well over the palate and has a super finish – faint oak flavours are to the fore, but still excellent wine.
2005 Potel Nicolas, Nuits St.Georges Les DamodesApr. 2007
A dense nose that still shows a little malo and just a little reduction too – it starts deep and tight, but slowly widens. The palate is well delineated and a little mineral. Good acidity and the tannins are so well covered they are just an after-thought.
1998 Remoriquet Henri & Gilles, Nuits St.Georges Les DamodesApr. 2007
The colour is very deep and surprisingly still clings to a young, faint cherry-red hue. The nose is brooding, dense and very focused – eventually a little underbrush compliments the black-skinned fruit. Concentrated, slightly metallic flavours and plenty of well covered fine tannin are the first impressions followed by faintly mouth-watering acidity and a long, fresh finish. This wine impresses with its very fresh, linear and concentrated yet still quite primary delivery – it is quite aloof – haughty even – but there are no hard edges. I would say it will benefit from at least another 3 years in the cellar.
