I have always been a big fan of this bottling, as the label licker bias and corresponding very fair pricing renders it an overachiever and then some. It is almost entirely comprised of the single lieu dit Bas de Combe, à la the Hudelot Noëllat and Mugneret Gibourg versions, that straddles the Nuits Saint Georges/Vosne Romanée border. It drinks just like one would imagine a crossover Vosne-ish Nuits wine would taste in deep florals and spice, with a kiss of Nuits wild. Again, for value hounds, this should be a no brainer.
“A more deeply pitched nose reflects notes of dark currant, plum, warm earth and a whisper of the sauvage. There is both good intensity and detail to the lightly mineral-inflected middle weight flavors that culminate in a mildly austere and rustic but solidly complex and persistent finish. This too is a competent effort. (88-91)/2023+” Allan Meadows
