91The Wine Advocate

Aromas of red berries, potpourri and rich soil tones introduce the 2018 Nuits-Saint-Georges Village, a medium to full-bodied, deep and succulent wine that's elegantly fleshy and enveloping, framed by an ample chassis of ripe, powdery tannins, concluding with a long, sapid finish.

89-91Vinous / IWC

...very pure bouquet of raspberry, wild strawberry and hints of blue fruit...palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannins, and quite firm, offering a mixture of red and black fruits laced with truffle and cedar toward the finish. Very fine.

A discreet but not invisible application of wood can be found on the fresh mix of red and dark pinot fruit, earth, spice and overt floral nuances. This is not especially dense but I like the energy of the middle weight flavors that possess a highly attractive texture, all wrapped in a firm, nicely complex and only mildly rustic finale.

16.5Jancis Robinson

...little more savoury...very slight stemmy herbal note but it's subtle...little lighter in obvious fruit and a little more tannic but barely so. Super-fresh. Dry and lingering. So elegant.


France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Nuits-Villages, Nuits-St.-Georges

Côte de Nuits is the northern part of the Côte d’Or and it includes the most famous vineyards and wine communes in the world. There are more Grand Cru appellations in the Côte de Nuits than anywhere else in Burgundy. Of the fourteen communes, or villages in the Côte de Nuits, six produce Grand Cru wines. They are Gevrey-Chambertin, Morey-St.-Denis, Chambolle-Musigny, Vougeot, Flagey-Échezeaux and Vosne-Romanee. Some of the vineyards within the Côte de Nuits are tiny, which adds to their prestige. The fabled Grand Cru vineyard La Romanee is barely two square acres. Altogether there are twenty-four Grand Cru vineyards. The region takes its name from the village of Nuits-Saint-Georges. Côtes de Nuits produces mostly reds from Pinot Noir, and the wines have been in demand for centuries. During the 18th century King Louis XIV’s physician recommended that for his health the king only drink wines from Nuits-Saint-Georges. Like most of Burgundy, the soils of the Côte de Nuit can vary greatly from one vineyard to another, though most are a base soil of limestone mixed with clay, gravel and sand.


Red Wine, Pinot Noir, AOC (AC)

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.
