The 2018 Nuits Saint-Georges Aux Thorey 1er Cru felt a little subdued when I tasted it from barrel; perhaps it is closing down more quickly than its siblings as the winter cold settles in the cellar. The palate is medium-bodied with chalky tannins and a little angular at the moment, but there is ample freshness on the graphite-tinged finish. A more aloof and serious Aux Thorey than in the past. It will be fascinating to see how this shows once in bottle. (NM)
Offering up notes of wild berries, peonies and spices, framed by rich soil tones and a deft touch of oak, the 2018 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Aux Thorey is medium to full-bodied, velvety and layered, with a deep core of fruit, lively acids and a beautifully defined finish. (WK)
Once again there is enough reduction present to knock down the fruit though it does seem ripe. More interesting are the vibrant, intense and highly refined medium weight flavors that also culminate in an austere, serious and very firm finish that offers notably better depth and persistence. With that said, I underscore that at least some patience will be necessary.
