Nuits Thorey, Domaine Sylvain Cathiard 2015
**Note: from a .43 ha parcel of vines planted in 1953**
An agreeably fresh nose offers up plenty of spice and earth elements that add breadth to the pretty array of rose petal and various red berry fruit scents. The mouthfeel of the medium weight flavors is a really lovely combination of punch and finesse while delivering excellent depth and length on the slightly warm finale. This is more 2015 in style than the two preceding wines and a wine that should drink reasonably well young but age well too.

The 2015 Nuits Saint Georges 1er Cru Aux Thorey, matured in 50% new oak, has a very harmonious bouquet with dark cherry and cranberry fruit, a touch of pomegranate emerging with time and then later there is a lovely tang of shucked oyster shell. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp acidity, certainly darker fruit here than the villages crus, more structured and masculine with a touch of confit fruit on the finish that just needs to develop a little more persistence on the aftertaste. Earlier drinking than the Aux Murgers, this is a delightful 2015 to enjoy over the next 10-12 years.
