Hubert Lignier Nuits St. Georges 1er Cru Les Didiers Hospices de Nuits
2014 Hubert Lignier Nuits St. Georges 1er Cru Les Didiers Hospices de Nuits...$429.99 / MAGNUM
The 2014 Nuits Saint Georges les Didiers Hospice de Nuits comes from the Cuvée Jacques Duret this year (it has not been the case in previous years). It has a pretty bouquet, redcurrant and cranberry fruit, violets coming through with time. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, beautifully judged acidity, the oak nicely integrated (Laurent prudently racked it into a used barrel after purchase) with a very harmonious, svelte finish. Superb.
