Medium-plus cherry red. The nose starts with an overcoat of plummy fruit, slowly removed to reveal a more earthy black cherry centre. The palate is fat and soft with good acidity and slightly grainy tannin. The fruit is again shaded to black and shows very good length though there is a little bitterness to the lingering fruit. This is certainly what I would describe as modern in style – eminently drinkable even if I’d never guess it was from Nuits!
