2009 Domaine Alain Michelot Nuits St. Georges 1er Cru Les Cailles 375mL

Cellar Tracker Community 91 points (as of 6/5/19)

John Gilman 91-93 points (rated Nov/Dec 2010) - The ’09 les Cailles was one of the last wines to finish up its malo in the Michelot cellars this year, and was still a bit edgy on the palate at the time of my visit. The nose is certainly a knockout this year, as it jumps from the glass in a sappy and superb mélange of cherries, raw cocoa, coffee, lovely soil tones, smoke and gamebirds. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, deep and not particularly sanguine about being tasted so soon after its malo, but with lovely focus and excellent grip on the long and ripely tannic finish. I have a hard time imagining that this will not eventually settle in at the very top of my range. (Drink between 2018-2050)
