Nuits-Saint-Georges Les Petits Plets, 2008, Domaine De L'Arlot
Note: from young vine Clos-de-Forêts St. Georges fruit planted in 1986 and after
An exceptionally fresh and bright nose of cool red berry fruit and dried rose petals gives way to good ripeness levels on the largely hidden structure supporting the bigger and richer medium-bodied flavors that possess a textured mouth feel on the mouth coating, serious and ever-so-slightly rustic finish that delivers fine persistence.
Again, a quality villages that will require mid-term patience.
