Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Clos des Corvées Pagets, 2011, Domaine Arnoux Lachaux
2011 Nuits St. Georges “Clos des Corvées Pagets”: (for inveterate map readers, Clos des Corvées Pagets is situated within Clos des Corvées).
This is also exceptionally fresh though much more restrained with a beautifully well-layered nose of red berry fruit, earth and a hint of spice. There is a wonderfully seductive character to the rich and velvety middle weight flavors that manage to retain a fine sense of precision on the mouth coating and vibrant finish.
This should mature gracefully and require the better part of a decade to be at its best.
