Combining cherry, earth and spice flavors allied to a firm base of tannins, this red is compact, focused by lively acidity. The finish is intense and long. Needs time to unwind. Best from 2022 through 2036.
(from vines first planted in 1902) Like the Combe d'Orveau the nose is super-spicy but it's also earthier with its broad-ranging nose of red and blue pinot fruit, earth and a lovely floral hint. There is excellent volume and obvious power to the punchy medium weight plus flavors that also possess seemingly endless reserves of dry extract, all wrapped in a driving, energetic and mouth coating finale. I very much like the balance here and this too should age effortlessly yet be approachable after only 5 to 7 years. *Sweet spot Outstanding*
The 2015 Nuits Saint-Georges 1er Cru La Richemone Vieilles Vignes "Cuvée Ultra" has another vibrant, generous bouquet with ample red cherry, cassis, crushed violet and mineral scents. It is very pure, almost sorbet-like. The palate is medium-bodied with fleshy ripe black cherry and blackcurrant fruit laced with a pinch of white pepper and minerals. Like Christophe's other 2015s, it offers panache in spades, with a caressing finish that lingers long in the mouth, a residue of orange rind on the aftertaste. This is excellent. (NM)
Dark red with ruby highlights. A note of musky, meaty reduction to the aromas of dark cherry and menthol. Plush and velvety for Nuits-Saint-Georges, with its black and red cherry and raspberry flavors complicated by a whiff of game. A wonderfully horizontal, palate-saturating wine with no rough edges. In a very ripe style but has possesses plenty of energy, and the serious but ripe and fully buffered tannins arrive late to give shape to the extremely long finish. Today this wine shows considerably more texture and sweetness than the Beaux Monts. (ST)
