Tasting Notes

The 2015 Nuits St Georges Bas de Combe has a rip-roaring bouquet with succulent ripe red cherries, bergamot and violet aromas that just soar from the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fresh acidity, nimble on its toes with fleshy dark cherry fruit laced with bay leaf and white pepper, leading to a precise and quite sustained finish. There is a bit of bravura to this 2015 and it comes recommended. Neal Martin
