"Deep, impenetrable colour. Beautifully smooth on the palate with fine-grained tannins and fresh acidity to keep everything in balance. Dark cherry and blueberry fruit on the palate with subdued, subtle oak. There is a fresh touch of spice and black pepper on the palate which leads to a very long finish. An extremely elegant Nuits Saint Georges with lots of potential. Drinking Window 2022 - 2032"
