Tasting Notes

his is riper still with liqueur-like dark berry fruit aromas that are liberally laced with spice, earth and game nuances. There is outstanding richness and volume to the seductively textured mid-palate that contrasts markedly with the firm, serious and ever-so-mildly rustic finale that is very Nuits in character. Drink: 2027+ Sweet spot Outstanding

Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (65), January 2017

The 2015 Nuits St Georges 1er Cru les Pruliers is slightly more effervescent and candied on the nose compared to Etienne Grivot's other wines from this appellation, hints of orange sorbet and marmalade developing alongside the red berry fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, crisp acidity, a firm backbone here, a Pruliers built for long-term ageing and delivering superb concentration. I can imagine this demanding 4-5 years in bottle. 2019 - 2038
