RATINGS

92The Wine Advocate

...modest nose of black cherries, raspberry and a touch of bergamot tea... The palate is well balanced with supple and quite fine tannin, a keen line of acidity with satisfying tension. It has a modern veneer, especially on the sweet finish, yet there is good quality fruit in situ.

92-95Stephen Tanzer

Lovely class and lift to the aromas of dark raspberry, bitter cherry, flowers, minerals and crushed stone. Urgent red and purple fruit flavors show outstanding penetration and delineation yet come across as remarkably refined and smooth. A salty character adds another dimension to the very long, vibrant, backward finish.

92-94Burghound.com

...plum, black cherry, dark currant and pungent earth-suffused aromas. This also possesses genuinely excellent volume and power as the broad-shouldered flavors possess both fine richness and seriously good mid-palate density on the mineral-inflected and palate coating finish.

Coates calls Les Saint-Georges “the best wine of the commune. It is simply the most complete, the most complex, and the most profound.”

Red Wine, Pinot Noir, 1er (Premier) Cru

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
