(a 3.5 ha monopole with 30+ year old vines). This is sufficiently reduced to overshadow the fruit but it appears to be ripe. Otherwise there is excellent punch and verve to the powerful and muscular flavors that possess excellent mid-palate density while delivering fine length on the balanced finish. This manages to be very Nuits in character without being unduly chewy or rustic. Once again, this is worth considering. (90-93)/2028+
