The 2008 Nuits St. Georges Roncieres offers up dark fruit, pine, menthol, spices and new leather. The wine gains volume and depth on the mid-palate, with notable expansiveness and richness. Silky tannins are layered into the elegant, persistent finish. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2018. ||This is a gorgeous set of wines from Etienne and Marielle Grivot that captures the essence of several of Vosne’s most illustrious vineyards. Grivot encourages slow malos and leaves the wines on the lees for approximately 15 months after the vinification. New oak ranges from 15-20% for the villages, 30-50% for the 1ers and 40-70% for the grands crus. Based on the wines I tasted 2009 looks like a much more consistent vintage than 2008. The finest 2008s are also well worth considering, but there are more highs and lows, especially in the entry part of the range. Wine Advocate.May, 2011
