The red wines have a lively colour that ranges from dark ruby to black cherry. Their aromas recall raspberries, blackcurrants and redcurrants, with notes of fruit kernels, liquorice and spices. Other aromas can also be present such as roses, violets, moss and undergrowth. On the palate, power, opulence and elegance combine to create full-bodied, complex, vigorous wines, with voluptuous substance, enabling them to age for at least 10 years. While these sumptuous Grands Crus have something of a family resemblance, there are nuances that set them apart.
A warm spring with some hail in the northern part of the Côte de Nuits. After an even flowering and a warm June, the summer arrived with variable July weather. Fortunately August was fine with a period of hot weather in the second week. September started with some rain, then became fine and warm again. A harvest of healthy, ripe grapes followed. The 2009s have all the structure packed in with rich, luscious fruit. Comparable to the 2005s. Great wines.
