This is one of five offerings from the village of Nuits St.-Georges, all of which are outstanding. The Nuits St.-Georges-Aux Allots exhibits a licorice, black fruit, earthy character, a super-saturated, deep purple color, deep, thick, rich, fruity flavors, full body, and a sweet, long, moderately tannic finish. It can be drunk young, but ideally I would wait 3-4 years and drink it over the following two decades. Importer: Martine's Wines, San Rafael, CA.
