As close to grand cru as one will find in Nuits-St-Georges. The vines were planted over 75 years ago, yielding a powerful, majestic wine with just a little sauvage edge. There is a compelling savoury note on the nose, along with dense mulberry fruit. On the palate, there is great density and firm tannins, but there is also exuberance and charm, even at such a youthful age. This will continue to improve for decades to come. 96 points. Decanter.
