RATINGS

93Wine Spectator

A hint of vanilla signals this smooth red, framing cherry, raspberry and stone flavors...balanced and dynamic...lingering, firm finish.

92The Wine Advocate

Opening in the glass with aromas of plums and cassis mingled with subtle hints of peonies and spices, the 2018 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Pruliers is medium to full-bodied, fleshy and enveloping, with an ample core of fruit, succulent acids and fine, powdery tannins that gently assert themselves on the finish. It's a voluptuous, fruit-driven Pruliers from Gouges, and it will offer a broad drinking window.

92Vinous / IWC

...elegant bouquet of pure dark cherries and light loamy aromas; there is an admirable sense of cohesion here. The palate is fine-boned with impressive focus, the predominantly red fruit lightly spiced (clove and sage), and an energetic and persistent finish.

16.5+ Jancis Robinson

Wonderfully seductive nose – ripe, dark-fruited and generous. Then quite a contrast on the palate: quite oaky, a touch of char adding a savoury note.

TYPE

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.
