Nuits St G 1er Cru Clos des Forets 14
There is a discreet but not invisible application of wood surrounding the intensely floral and notably gamy dark berry fruit suffused nose. There is both volume and nicer mid-palate concentration to the broad-shouldered flavours where the abundant dry extract does a fine job of buffering the firm and slightly rustic tannins that impart a dusty texture to the impressively complex and persistent finish.
