2005 Rion Daniel, Nuits St.Georges Les Grandes VignesApr. 2009
Medium, medium-plus young colour. Some oak, but also very pretty fruit with a faintly spicy width. Good concentration, the intensity builds aided by super acidity and equally super mouth-watering length. Very good.

Deep ruby-red, not 100% bright. The nose betrays what must have been a fair whack of oak in this wine’s youth, but it’s coming together now – just a little creamy with smokey, dusky black fruit. Fresh, mouthwatering acidity, fine density to the mid-palate and a lingering finish. Perhaps it’s just a little tart to be described as very well balanced, however, very enjoyable though it’s my last…
