Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: 92 points

The 2005 Nuits-St.-Georges Les Perrieres (from 63- to 68-year-old vines) leads with fresh and distilled black cherry, cola and toasted nut aromas, offers expansive, rich strawberry and cherry fruit on a creamy palate, and reveals impressively stony underlying minerality in its long, sweetly-fruited, cherry pit-, iodine- and spice-inflected finish. This might seem understated at first sip, but it offers wonderful depth and subtlety. One would never guess that three quarters of the barrels are new – a testimony to the wine's inherent concentration.
