The 2016 Nuits Saint Georges 1er Cru Les Pruliers has a generous bouquet that wants to make up for the depletion in quantity: punnets of strawberries, raspberry preserve, cold stone and crushed flowers. The palate is nicely structured and I agree with Romain Taupenot that is has a Morey-Saint-Denis-like structure. I love the sustain on the finish here and the purity of this Les Pruliers. Not quite up there with the fabulous 2015 Les Prulier...but hey, not far off. (NM)
Relatively generous wood is enough to fight somewhat with the otherwise fresh and attractive aromas of dark currant, cherry, earth and a hint of planting soil character. There is excellent volume, power and mid-palate density to the enveloping middle weight plus flavors that deliver fine length on the moderately rustic finish where the wood resurfaces along with a hint of warmth. This appears to have the requisite concentration to absorb the wood but once again it's not 100% clear that it will as it's definitely not subtle.
Deep ruby-red. Lively aromas of black cherry, dark raspberry, minerals, licorice and mint. Dense, sappy and sweet, with a complicating saline element to the concentrated flavors of blueberry, licorice, menthol and dark chocolate. Finishes tactile and long, with palate-dusting tannins. (ST)
