Visual: Sustained, bright cherry red.
Nose: Cinnamon, cloves and Morello cherries, with hints of liquorice and blond tobacco.
Palate: Full-bodied and persistent with fur, spices and truffles. Nuits St. Georges wines have a high tannin content and are powerful, full-bodied and robust. This is perhaps the wine in which the Pinot Noir grape achieves the most perfect harmony between tannins and plumpness.
