Albert Bichot 2007 Nuits Saint Georges

May 29, 2011

Hmm, single bottle holding…Better be nice if it wants to make it back to the cellar…

Classic ruby colour, of medium intensity. Just a touch of light garnet too. Soon after poured this comes across very masculine and dark, oak.  This initial “aggressiveness” fades away after a few minutes revealing elegant and pure sour cherry harmoniulsy blended in a piercingly fresh balsamic current. The plentiful sweet spice mix becomes nearly physical here. Wow, the palate bursts with juicy fruit, intense and sappy all the way. This achieves great balance through an impeccable acidic lift. The spiced finish is marked by appealing creaminess. Comes across as resolute and elegant. Rebuy: yes.
