2006 Perrot Minot Richemone Ultra Vv Nuits St Georges

"Wild, smoky aromas are followed by cassis, violet, bilberry and vanilla flavors. Ripe and silky, yet with a dense structure. There's terrific harmony and expression already, yet the long, sweet finish shows its ultimate potential. Give this time to absorb the oak. Best from 2012 through 2025." "Deep ruby. Crushed black fruits, pungent minerality and a note of smoky stone on the nose. The palate offers huge volume without undue weight, but less obvious fat than the "regular" Richemone. Seamless, dense and fine-grained but also racy and juicy. Really saturates the palate with fruits and minerals and hangs around for a while." 91-94 Points - Stephen Tanzer "A moderately reduced nose makes it difficult to fairly evaluate but the delicious, powerful and intense full-bodied flavors possess excellent concentration and a serious and sleekly muscled finish that displays real drive and finishing punch. This is a big but not inelegant wine with excellent development potential." 90-92 Points - Allen Meadows (Burghound) [+]
