1988 Dubois R et Fils, Nuits St.Georges Les Porrets St.GeorgesApr. 2010
The colour is heading towards amber. Sweet fruit aromas, backed with a little volatile acidity. Energetic in the mouth, but still with quite some tannic astringency – I’d suggest waiting a couple of years ;-)
2006 Faiveley Joseph, Nuits St.Georges Les Porrets St.GeorgesFeb. 2010
I’d love to be able to recommend this wine (after all I bought some!) but today is not the day to tell you if it is, or will be, any good. Today it is a complete waste of money – aromatically dumb, narrow on the palate and showing a very limited flavour profile. It is a wine that is a perfect exemplar of the the oft-used descriptor – closed. This is so closed that it’s even rolled down the shutters. For those that are still reading, the texture is silky and the balance is fine, there is even a hint of intensity, but today MIA… Day two and there’s hint of dark cherry and damson on the nose – wow – careful, I’m almost starting to enjoy it!
2007 Bouchard Père et Fils, Nuits St.Georges Les Porrets St.GeorgesDec. 2009
Always a high maturity in this parcel. Medium, medium-plus colour. The nose seems to have a furry texture, lovely width and depth. sweet, but not too sweet. There is more silk and fat, lovely width and complexity across the palate – narrows quite quickly but keeps true in the finish. A very elegant Nuits.
