The 2004 Les St. Georges is the aristocrat of the cellar, and while it may not quite have the same power as the Vaucrains, it is the most complex young wine here. The nose is deep, refined and shows outstanding complexity for such a young bottle of Nuits, offering up notes of black cherries, red plums, layers of minerality, a bit of the game to come, woodsmoke, bitter chocolate, a hint of violet (though not as floral as the Cailles) and a delicate framing of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, closed and rock solid at the core, with beautiful balance, well-integrated tannins, and a long, tangy finish. Great juice in the making.
Here the nose is ever-so-slightly more elegant with a fruitier and more expressive quality with less earth and more red Pinot fruit aromas though all the complexity and perhaps even a touch more. The flavors are classy, fine and wonderfully pure and crafted in a supple and perfectly balanced style that delivers outstanding length and striking intensity. As it usually is, this is a model of refinement and understated grace. *Don't Miss! Outstanding*
Good red-ruby. Reticent, pure aroma of medicinal black cherry. Silky and suave on the palate but a bit more austere and reserved today than the Cailles. Lovely cherry and raspberry fruit is framed by minerality. This mounts slowly and impressively, coating the palate with flavor. When a Nuits-Saint-George wine is velvety like this one is, it's almost invariably Les Saint-Georges. (ST)
