1996 Nuits St Georges Rue de Chaux Bertrand Ambroise

Average critic rating : 91.0 points



This saturated, dark-colored wine has expressive aromas of lively black currants and licorice. Its character is so dense, chewy, and structured that a knife and fork may be required to taste it. It is foursquare, backward, intense, and redolent in cassis, blackberry, and road tar-like flavors. This was a difficult wine to taste, as it assaulted my palate. It will either ultimately merit an outstanding rating in the range I ascribed to it (maybe higher), or succumb to its elevated tannins. I would suggest trying it in five years.
