An attractive purple robe of medium intensity, brilliant. The first nose is discreet, slightly wooded, opening into quite powerful kirsch-like aromas.In the mouth the wine very much reflects its terroir, and is both powerful and firm. There are aromas of cherry and kirsch reminiscent of the nose. The finish is long with fine tannins that are at present firm, but will soften over time.
"This is also aromatically dominated by reductive notes but it seems reasonably clear that the underlying fruit is ripe. The textured and well-concentrated flavors possess ripe structuring tannins and fine length. There is good balance and while this is still quite tightly wound there is excellent underlying depth of material that should augur well for up to a decade of improvement.

"Expressive aromas of red berries and oak spice grace this polished red, whose tannins are kept at bay by the fleshy texture. Fresh and firm, with spice notes echoing on the finish."
"Moderately saturated medium red. Slightly liqueur-like aromas of redcurrant, plum, mocha and spicy oak. Not especially complex but thick and vibrant, offering a light touch to its blackberry and spice flavors. Finishes with sweet tannins and very good persistence."

"The 2010 Nuits St. Georges Les Corvées Paget is a powerful, super-ripe wine that shows quite a bit of exuberance. This was one of the last parcels to be harvested. The level of ripeness and concentration are a little unusual for the year. Once the juiciness fades off a bit, there isn't as much complexity as is found in the best 2010s here."
