This is also really quite aromatically pretty with is well-layered blend of lavender, violet, black cherry, raspberry and discreet wisps of humus. The sleeker but definitely not bigger or more powerful flavors possess equally good density while delivering even better depth on the focused, moderately austere and even more structured finish. This is potentially outstanding though not well that it too is very much built-to-age. One to strongly consider.
The 2019 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Saint Georges (Maison Louis Jadot) offers up notes of plums, orange rind, warm spices and sweet berry fruit. Medium to full-bodied, rich and fleshy, it's demonstrative, even dramatic in style this year, with a gourmand core of fruit and ripe structuring tannins. I suspect this will show well straight out of the gates.
Bright ruby colour in the glass. This combines an earthiness of place, the sweetness of vintage and the purity of Pinot Noir together in a wonderful array of red berry fruit, cloves, darker cherries and some smoke. The palate is bursting with more summer pudding tones but has a smoky, gravelly nature and sinewy fine muscle from ripe, but distinctively Nuits St Georges tannins. This interplay of serious structure and supple fruit means that this is a gorgeous wine to try now - especially with a decant - but one that will benefit from bottle age. A real success, unifying site and vintage into a wine with a long drinking window ahead.
