With its well-defined character, this wine perfectly illustrates the identity of the Nuits Saint Georges vineyard. Complex aromas of blackcurrant mingled with spicy blackberry are revealed on the nose with, depending on the vintage, darker notes of liquorice and leather. The well-built mouth affirms itself with density and strength around a tight structure with rich, well-wrapped tannins. It becomes increasingly seductive over time, which comes from the elegance, intensity and purity of the fruit.

Wine AdvocateI tasted different barrel samples of the 2013 Nuits St Georges Clos des Fôrets Saint Georges 1er Cru according to soil type and altitude, since they differ so much in this monopole. The final blend demonstrated a more complex bouquet than the Clos de l'Arlot: a mixture and red and black fruit, minerals and a subtle marine influence. The palate is very well balanced with fine tannins, a silver thread of acidity and real density and panache on the finish. There is quite marked difference between the two monopoles this year, this certainly the better.
