This dark-ruby/black-colored wine has intensely ripe red and black fruit aromas that are followed by a palate-staining, full-bodied, and massively concentrated wine with enormous richness and depth. This powerful, harmonious, and extremely well-balanced and focused Nuits possesses layers of sweet, red and black fruits that dominate its flavor profile and admirably long finish. Its satiny tannins should have melted by 2003...This offering is fabulous! (PR)
(opened from personal storage). A fully mature and beautifully complex nose speaks of earth, spice and secondary fruit aromas though no sous bois and leads to rich, round and delicious medium-bodied flavors that possess the same excellent depth as the nose. The palate impression is velvety and this is quite unlike the majority of '96s as the underlying acidity is completely harmonious and integrated. In sum, this is really lovely juice that is at its apogee now but should hold for years to come.
Sensational. Bursting with complexity, it's like fireworks on the palate. Beautifully toasty, with smoke, tar, vanilla, plum, black cherry, and the texture is like velvet despite the massive tannin structure.
Bright red ruby. Tangy aromas of wild raspberry, fraise des bois, roast coffee and maple syrup. Sweet, lush and spherical; very suave and rich. Vibrant flavor of crunchy raspberry. Intensely spicy and impressively long. A very young, solidly structured wine that already shows loads of personality. 91+ (ST)
