Nuits St Georges les Damodes Faiveley 2015

Winemaker's Notes:

91-93 Points, Allen Meadows, Burghound: "This is completely different with its brooding and reserved nose of ripe extract of black cherry along with plenty of earth, floral and sauvage hints. The powerful and concentrated middle weight plus flavors possess a lush and velvety mouth feel while displaying ample muscle on the structured, serious and impressively persistent finale. Like the Clos de l'Ecu, this moderately rustic effort will need patience." 1/17 89-92 Points, Stephen Tanzer, Vinous: "Bright red-ruby. Tight, medicinal scents of black cherry, spices and licorice. Offers subtle sweetness in the middle but a peppery quality to the dark fruit flavors suggests that this fruit did not have the flavor development of the Chaignots. Flous will give this wine a longer élevage in order to polish its serious dusty tannins. Still, this is in a relatively tough style for the year." 1/17
