The 2006 Nuits-St.-Georges La Richemone Vieilles Vignes - which I last tasted from tank shortly before bottling - is another Perrot-Minot exploration of the Dark Side, with lightly-cooked black fruits, black tea, and smoked meat; palate-saturating intensity; and a formidable but fairly fine-grained tannic density. Will the bitter aspect of this wine's bitter-sweetness dominate over finer nuances or limit its ability to soar as it evolves? It should in any event be a question that will require 6-8 years' patience to answer.
