The wines might require time, but given this, they will provide rewarding depth and, in some instances, a hedonistic burst that is rarely seen from the Nuits-Saint-Georges appellation. Like her wines, she was a bit cautious at first, but revealed her personality as we got deeper into the tasting.
But it does perhaps show virtues that need to be rediscovered.

Even I could perhaps drink a glass without posting the bottle on five different media outlets. Pinot for your thoughts? Both the vineyard and the estate took their name from this stream — the latter in Jean-Charles Vienot was the owner when Lavalle wrote his book in 1.
He created the estate in the eighteenth century, and it was passed on to his son Francois Vienot, who renovated the chateau and the estate buildings and laid out a park with sculptures behind them 2. In the beginning, Jules Belin was quite successful.
But after most of his family was killed in a car accident inthe company and the estate began to decline 5. This process took more than 50 years, and some vineyards were sold off along the way. In the end, after owning the estate for almost years, the Belin family sold it all to insurance giant AXA, which had formed a partership with Jean-Pierre de Smet.
Jean-Pierre de Smet, an ccountant and businessman, had taken an interest in winemaking after a visit to his friend Jacques Seysses at Domaine Dujac.
His eye fell on the old Jules Belin domaine, and he initiated the deal with Belin inbringing the insurance company AXA in as partner and owner of the estate and vineyards. I recall tasting the s in their youth, and they were indeed very forward and expressive at that time.
InOlivier Leriche was hired as a stagiaire, and he worked together with Jean-Pierre de Smet untilwhen he took over the winemaking. Inde Smet began to experiment with biodynamic viticulture, and since the entire estate has been cultivated biodynamically.
De Smet retired from the domaine inupon which Christian Seely took over as managing director, with Leriche continuing in charge of the winemaking. Olivier Leriche stayed on untilwhen he decided to retire — or rather retire to run his own estate in the Ardeche.

They inspired me to remember the Beckett quote:. This wine is from the area above Premeaux, at an altitude of metres.
This is located just below the RD opposite the estate. It is richer and broader, and the alcohol is more prominent. It is quite intense, and shows a lovely mineral note from this fine terroir. Currently somewhat closed, but this will definitely provide beautiful drinking when a bit of age opens it up.
This is from the steepest slopes of the vineyard just north of the estate. The wines are old: some planted inothers in It is rich, intense, and delicate with an almost silky, creamy feel. Very good acidity provides excellent balance.
This has a regal feel of greatness — although not of grand cru intensity. A perfect match for the vintage.
I adore the minerality on the finish and the mid-palate. There is cherry and blackcurrant, but also a strong hint of ripe prune that gives the wine its overripe expression. Add to this notes of tobacco leaves, mint, liquorice, and pepper, and it becomes too much for my palate. This comes from a small vineyard below the village of Comblanchien. Notes of sweet Morello cherries mix with scents of clove and sandalwood.
I find beautiful notes sweet red cherries and a hint of roses — light-footed, yet with good length. An adorable vin de soif. You need to to read the rest of the article. If you are not a subscriber, use the subscribe function and -up. You need a Winehog subscription to see the rest of this article.
