Aromatically demure, reluctantly revealing a sweet, black mass, the dense, hugely concentrated 2002 Nuits-St.-Georges Les Pruliers is a big, bold, masculine wine. Licorice, asphalt, candied blackberries and cherries can be detected in this medium to full-bodied behemoth’s personality. Possessing broad shoulders, awesome length, and exquisitely ripened tannin, this is a candidate for drinking between 2008 and 2020. (PR)
Spice, earth, prominent iron notes and an interesting herbal character precede rich, full and very powerful, intense and understated flavors that are somewhat raw today. The finishing complexity is impressive but this is clearly in need of more time in barrel to round out.
Deep red. Pure, cool, complex aromas of cherry, mint, menthol and licorice. Almost surprisingly sweet and fat on entry, then tighter in the middle, with notes of iron, tobacco and licorice. Less complex in the mouth today than on the nose, but this is quite folded in on itself right now. Finishes with youthfully tough tannins. This needs a good decade in the cellar, and should ultimately merit an outstanding rating. (ST)
