Ambroise Nuits-St-Georges Argillieres 1er Cru 2005

/ML 750
Quantity Available: 0, OUT OF STOCK
The 2005 Nuits-St.-Georges Clos des Argillieres generates intense aromas and flavors of bitter-sweet blackberry, mulberry, herbs and dark chocolate. A rich palate offers more sweetness of black fruit than the other Nuits-St.-George bottlings in this year’s collection, with formidable, firm, yet supportive rather than obtrusive tannins. A good shaking reveals distilled black and blue fruit and herbal essences. For all of this wines brash black fruit bitterness and tartness and for all of its sheer density and abundance of tannin, it nevertheless displays a comforting tendency toward creaminess of texture. It finishes with grip and intensity but no roughness, and it would benefit from up to a decade in one’s cellar. (David Schildknecht, WA June 2007)
