Dominique Laurent Nuits-Saint-Georges Numero 1 Vieilles Vignes 2014
Full, dark red. Very ripe aromas of black cherry, boysenberry and licorice enlivened by a stony quality. At once silky-smooth and firm on the palate, showing a medicinal reserve and modest sweetness to its dark fruit and bitter chocolate flavors. This concentrated, structured village blend is sappy but backward today; its building tannins will require at least a couple years of bottle aging.
