(for inveterate map readers, Clos des Corvées Pagets is situated within Aux Corvées). Reduction overshadows the underlying fruit at present. On the plus side there is both excellent intensity and energy to the overtly mineral-inflected flavors that reflect a sleek muscularity on the rustic and more tightly wound finale. This is a classically styled Nuits that will require at least a few years of cellar time first. (89-92)/2024+
