(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)
Bright, dark red-ruby. Pungent dark cherry, licorice, minerals and menthol on the nose, with an element of spicy oak emerging with air (one of the four barrels was new). The almost medicinal menthol element carries through on the rather powerful, closed palate, but the wine's very pure dark fruit and saline flavors already display a seamless texture. Very Nuits-Saint-Georges in its tannic structure, this premier cru will need extended cellaring. (ST)
