This Nuits Saint Georges Vieilles Vignes bursts forth withpeppery and spicy cherries. This impressive wine is concentrated, muscular and very well-structured!
Wine Advocate 90 points - From vines of 65 years and older in parcels situated below Les St.-Georges and Cailles ? and aged in 70% new barrels (as opposed to the 40% of Ambroise’s ””regular”” village Nuits) ? the 2006 Nuits St.-Georges Vieilles Vignes offers alluring aromas and deep, sweet ripeness of black raspberry and cassis, wreathed in smoke and underlain with crushed stone. Palpably dense and with quite fine-grained tannin, it finishes with clean, vibrant fruit that is admirably transparent to fascinating mineral and raw carnal nuances, and unencumbered by any overt oakiness. It should have 6-8 year potential. (Dec 2009)
