more earth, indeed even a hint of animale. There is a beguiling purity to the tautly muscular, intense and energetic medium weight plus flavors that also possess a firm minerality on the saline-inflected, balanced and quite solidly structured finish. As it virtually always is, this is a bigger, more powerful and more tannic wine than either of its two Nuits 1er stable mates and as a natural consequence will require a few more years of cellar time. Recommended, again provided that you have the patience to wait for it to mature. 91-93pts Allen Meadows, Burghound


Tasted blind at the Burgfest tasting in Beaune, the 2013 Nuits Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Pruliers has a refined bouquet with undergrowth-infused red berry fruit, a little rustic but charming and expressive. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp red cherry and strawberry fruit, fine tannin and prudent use of oak. There is focus and precision here, decent length and class. This is a top-notch and utterly delightful Nuits Saint-Georges in the making, surpassing my estimation in barrel. Tasted September 2016. 92pts Neal Martin, Vinous
