"Bright, moderately saturated dark red. Aromas of blackberry, black cherry, dusty spices and licorice. Juicy, primary and quite youthful but with surprising texture and inner-mouth spicy lift. This shows a lighter touch and is easier to taste today than the basic village Nuits. Finishes broad and chocolatey, with chewy tannins."
