92–94 pts. Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar: Jan/Feb 2011
Red-ruby. Very ripe aromas of cassis, licorice and flowers enlivened by cooler crushed stone and mineral notes. Sweet, suave and fine-grained; primary, juicy and densely packed. Finishes with substantial but refined tannins and excellent length. Very promising. Hervet noted that Faiveley vinified most of the 2009s with about 25% whole clusters with the objective of “civilizing the tannins.”

Moderate floral notes add breadth to the very fresh and earthy red currant and plum aromas that lead to precise, vibrant and attractively transparent medium-bodied flavors that are complex, serious and persistent. This is a classic Nuits with fine balance.
