Domaine des Perdrix, Nuits-Saint-Georges Aux Perdrix (monopole) 1er Cru 1996

Perdrix Nuits 1996

Extracted color, streaked with magenta still.  Flush with ambition on entry, glossy and saturated with a sandalwood char.  As the high-toast and oak-spice lifts, a Prémeaux of uncommon finesse unfurls.  He skips black to red, marionberry with a touch of confit, then woodland berries and blood-orange.  Lots and lots of ’96 acidity but not a bit lean, so lush is the layering of fruit.   Dramatic finish with lift and precision.   He’s actualized now, realizing the potential of his youth.  Now – 2020+.
