2005-Louis Jadot Nuits Saint Georges
The wines of Nuits-Saint-Georges are the sturdiest and longest-lived of the Côte de Nuits. They can appear closed and often inaccessible when young but remain full-bodied and tannic well into middle age - a perfect wine for aging.
The result is a classic Nuits-Saint-Georges that is deeply-colored and vigorous, with ripe, robust fruit flavors and nuances of toasted oak in the bouquet. Generous red berry and dark stone fruit flavors and aromas mark this robust, masculine Pinot Noir, and are offset by earth and spice notes with direct tannic structure.
