Cask sample. Mid crimson with soft rim. Scented with cherries and a touch floral. Ripe but fresh fruit. On the palate, very dry tannins, with the fruit having to work hard to keep up and fill the core. Chewy and a bit hard. Again, not enough fruit for the structure though perhaps it will blossom? (JH)

The 2019 Nuits Saint-Georges Les Vignes Rondes has a perfumed, floral bouquet, a mixture of red cherries, cranberry and rose petal that open nicely with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with grippy red berry fruit and chalky textured with a stern and rather rigid finish. It is just a little too dry on the end but maybe it will gain some flesh with bottle age?
