Mid ruby. Very light, almost unassertive nose – especially just after the Angerville Taille Pieds! Lovely transparent lucid sweetness on the palate. Charmarama. Beautiful balance and restraint. Delightful. Just very fine tannins on the end. Sweet, jewelly redcurrants on the end.
Anticipated maturity: 2017-2029
Very deep, bright red. Sappy black cherry, raspberry, cola and licorice on the nose, plus a whiff of animal fur. Big, deep and chocolatey, with serious depth of black cherry and dark berry fruit. The big Nuits-Saint-Georges tannins are sexed up by high-toned oak spices on the impressively long finish. Jacques-Frederic Mugnier punches down the cap late in the fermentation, when the juice is almost dry and the skins have softened, an approach that he believes results in a steadier uptake of sugar in his wines.
