"The 2008 Nuits St. Georges shows gorgeous depth and richness to match its soft, engaging personality. The finish is a bit diffuse, which is not unusual in 2008. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2020.
Jerome Chezeaux farms a total of 11.2 hectares of vineyards, of which 6.6 are estate owned. The fruit is 100% destemmed. Chezeaux favors fairly lengthy macerations. New oak levels are on the low side. As is the case at many estates, the 2009s have a slight upper hand in many of the entry and mid-level wines, while at the high end the 2008s are superb. Either way, these are some of the most beautiful, classically built wines I tasted on my trip. Patience is required, though, as these are sturdy wines that need bottle age." - 89+PtsAntonio Galloni - The Wine Advocate
