Hautes Côtes de Nuits La Corvée de Villy

2005 Liger-Belair Thibault Hautes Côtes de Nuits La Corvée de Villy

By on July 01, 2008 #asides

Medium, medium-plus cherry red colour. The nose starts with quite a dose of high toast oak, but over an hour this moves more into the background to show a little bacon and slight reduction – even after a couple of hours I didn’t get to the fruit. In the mouth it’s ripe and sweet and the oak is very much in the background. Medium-bodied with largely hidden tannins and very nice acidity. The length is excellent and far from woody. Despite the oak style being my least favourite and the nose missing a little dimension, this is a delicious wine that’s very pinot.
