Here the wood treatment is a bit more evident yet it remains sufficiently subtle so as to allow the spicier aromas of dark currant, newly turned earth and game nuances to shine. The medium weight flavors are not quite as dense but they're more refined thanks to the finer-grain of the supporting tannins on the lightly mineral-inflected finale. Note that even though the tannins are finer they're also denser and this too will need a few years first.
The 2015 Nuits Saint-Georges Les Chaliots, which has a little more acidity than the other cuvées, has a tightly wound, perhaps more introspective bouquet compared to some of Michel Gros' other cuvées this year, however, I appreciate the delineation and it gains an attractive floral note as it opens in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with pure redcurrant and blackcurrant notes, a keen line of acidity, impressive structure (especially for a village cru), and a surfeit of freshness and tension on the finish. This is an excellent wine from Michel Gros and comes highly recommended.(NM)
