Domaine François Legros, Nuits-Saint-Georges Les Bousselots 1er Cru 1990


Imported by Lexington Selections, New York NY.

Ruby core, fade to amber.  This shows the creamy texture and lavish padding of ’90.  Usually the sun never shines on Nuits.  The wines come off metaphorically dark: mother rock tends to dominate the fruit / terroir equation.  Not so ’90, where fruit flesh wins outright, complicated by notes of oyster liquor and the peel of a blood orange.  Expansive, daisy girl finish.  Now.
