Description

Wine Spectator – 95 points
Earthy reduction in the aroma gives way to pure cherry, raspberry and stone flavors, revealing flashes of spice and dark, meaty elements. Dense and lush, with black fruit, spice and toast notes on the long finish. Powerful. Best from 2023 through 2042.
Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate – 93 points
The 2016 Nuits Saint Georges 1er Cru Clos des Porrets Saint Georges, matured in 20% new oak, offers attractive dusky black berries on the nose mixed with cold black tea and bay leaf. Give it a couple of swirls and a lovely crushed rose petal note leaps from the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, finely judged acidity, a little grainy in texture toward the finish. There are wonderful pure black and red fruits with a vein of blood orange on the finish. Though not as good as the 2015 maybe, this remains a fine contribution to the vintage.
