Vibrant ruby red in color.Chi nose on opening of black cherry tea. Palate confirms the nose adding a touch of tarry jam wrapped in a medium body. Firm but forgiving (medium plus) tannins and bright (medium plus) acidity round out this classic, food loving Burgundy. Makes my Hickory Farms meat and cheese plate sing. Drink now after a decanting or hold until at least 2025.

Elegant. And for once I'm not using the word sarcastically.

2005 vintage. The elegance and structure you'd expect from Nuits Saint Georges: Wet slate, griotte cherries, strawberries crabapple, English breakfast tea, forest floor, moist moss over bark. I only wish there was a little more heft to the body to meet the acid. It would've brought out the lovely concentration of fruit out more, too. Nonetheless, this was most lovely, by itself and also with pork/apples, abalone, buttery lobster and uni, and sole.

Great Pinot. Long finish but drops off somewhat in the mid palette for me.

Very tired and waaay past its prime. Brown rims, almost see through, black tea color. Nose is nonexistent with weak attempts at leather and tobacco. Light-bodied, racy with spiky alcohol and heavy paper tones on the palate. 3 hours in decanter smoothed it out a bit, but still it tasted like previously chewed on paper bag, soaked in cheap watered down vodka. Sad sad, but honestly, the hopes of this being decent were very slim.
