*Outstanding* Once again reduction dominates. By contrast there is a really lovely freshness and vibrancy to the intense and focused middle weight plus flavors that culminate in a powerful, rustic and beautifully persistent finish. This is a classic Nuits that is going to require close to a decade to be approachable and should reward 12 to 15 years of cellaring.
The 2014 Nuits Saint-Georges 1er Cru Clos des Porrets Saint Georges, a monopole of the domaine, has a crisp leafy bouquet with autumn leaves and touches of flint coming through with aeration. The palate is well balanced with fine tannin, a certain brightness to the fruit here - resolutely "classic" in style, a "cool" NSG but with very fine delineation on the finish. Not a long-term proposition perhaps, but a well-crafted drop of wine that will repay time in the cellar. (NM)
Good dark red. Laid-back aromas of currant, raspberry, smoke and earth. Quite dry and classic, with its dark raspberry, chocolate, spice and soil flavors showing a saline complexity if less plushness and sweetness than the 2015 version. Builds nicely on the back end, finishing with rather refined tannins. The crop level here was a reasonable 36 hectoliters per hectare. (ST)
