Wine Spectator – 93 points
Offering a mix of graphite, cherry, raspberry and smoky, spicy flavors, this red is complex and structured. A little disjointed now, with all the components in the right places, so give this some time. Fine length. Best from 2023 through 2045.

This too is trimmed in just enough wood to notice though the aromatic profile is much more deeply pitched with its layered array of dark berries, plum, earth and forest floor scents. There is outstanding richness to the full-bodied, concentrated and muscular flavors that are shaped by moderately rustic tannins on the sappy and mouth coating finale. This will also need at least a few years of cellar time first.

Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate – 88-90 points
The 2015 Nuits St Georges Village comes from parcels located close to Vosne-Romanée. It was showing a little sur-maturité on the nose with touches of fig and dates infusing the red cherry fruit. The palate is better and shows more freshness and balance. The acidity is nicely judged here and there is a tang of citrus fruit towards the confit-like, chalky-textured finish. It will require 2-3 years in bottle to find its groove, although there is good substance here, if not quite the refinement that would merit a higher evaluation.
