2009 Heresztyn, Nuits St.Georges Les PerrièresJan. 2011
Also rather tight – slowly some high tones and coal come through. Wider, fuller and sweeter. There is quite come complexity here – a hint of licorice too.
2008 Chauvenet Jean, Nuits St.Georges Les PerrièresDec. 2010
Bigger glass, more aeration; yet the fruit holds onto a creamy-vanilla coating which I don’t remember being so obvious back in Nuits in the (11°!) cellar. The fruit, however, is a summer pudding of black and to a lesser extent red berries and is quite captivating. Plenty of acidity which turns into real intensity in the mid-palate and towards the finish – plenty more of that summer-pudding fruit flavour as go into the finish. There is just enough concentration of sweet-sour fruit to avoid the acidity taking over. You really have to search out the tannin; I cool it down in the fridge and there’s that glossy dark fruit impression that I noted in Nuits – at least it’s the same wine then! Intense, even a bit cerebral – I love this wine.
2008 Chauvenet Jean, Nuits St.Georges Les PerrièresDec. 2010
Deep colour. Lovely deep dark aromas to match, almost textured with a faint dark chocolate. Wide with lovely, lithe dark fruit and some velvet tannin in the background. Slowly lingering finish. Bravo.
2007 Chauvenet Jean, Nuits St.Georges Les PerrièresDec. 2010
This is still quite a dark colour. The nose has a chocolate accent. In the mouth this is about dark fruit and a very similar tannin to the 2008 – a very nice extra dimension of fruit in the mid palate too. A really good 2007!

1990 Giroud Camille, Nuits St.Georges Les PerrièresJul. 2010
The aromas are deep and just a hint musky, below lies very young fruit. This is full-bodied – there is still plenty of tannin. Really good dimension – this has a full and very outgoing personality that jumps out of the glass – clearly very impressive.
2006 Legros François, Nuits St.Georges Les PerrièresDec. 2009
Medium-plus colour. Deep, velvety aromas over a hint of volatility that wasn’t there on day one. Smooth, yet with plenty of finely grained, underlying tannin. Long, concentrated and balanced, the fruit is dark before a higher-toned burst of fruit in the mid-palate, there is a nice depth of flavour before the wine slowly fades into the finish. Plenty of structure but it’s not a burly Nuits expression, rather (perhaps) a softer Perrières expression. Very nice wine.
