A brooding and pungently earthy nose mixes dark berry aromas with humus, underbrush and sauvage notes. There is very fine richness to the suave and quite round medium-bodied flavors that retain a lovely sense of vibrancy on the lingering finish. This is finer than the Porrets but less powerful. A qualitative choice.
The 2012 Nuits St Georges 1er Cru Les Pruliers was showing just a little reduction on the nose, but it reluctantly opens with lovely cranberry and pomegranate scents mingling with cold stone and even light mushroom scents. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp, taut tannin; quite elegant and harmonious on the finish that does not quite possess the animation of the Clos des Porrets at the moment. Let's see if it catches up its fellow premier crus in bottle. (NM)
Moderately saturated medium red. Musky aromas of wild strawberry, earth and spices. Juicy and intensely flavored but tight, even a bit tough, with savory soil tones dominating. This very structured wine appears to be going into a shell. (ST) 90+
