Domaine Daniel Bocquenet, Nuits-Saint-Georges Aux Saint-Julien Réserve 1995

Bocquenet Nuits Julien 1995

Twenty years on.

Bright, immature ruby.  Authoritative, fruit and mineral fused as one, his black cherry power rooted in a bedrock of self-belief.  The finish has a latticed mineralic complexity.  A bit more tapering at the end: otherwise, this drinks like he’s eight, not twenty.  Still room for some upside development and will keep for ages.  Now – 2020+.
