(2011 Vintage) An eye-catching deep ruby, with violet reflections. The first nose is complex, powerful, with mineral notes, developing into aromas that are at once both spicy and fruity, (cassis, blackberry). The mouth is typically ‘Nuits', a very rich wine, enveloping literally all the palate. Black fruit, such as blackberries, dominates the aromas. One also notices the finesse and depth of the tannins. The finish is clean and very elegant.
Match it now or in 4 or 5 years with a Barbary Duckling.
