2012 Domaine de la Vougeraie Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru "Clos de Thorey"

SKU #1235667 91 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Impressive out of barrel, the 2012 Nuits St Georges 1er Cru Clos des Thorey is beginning to fulfill its potential in bottle. It has a conservative but detailed, forest floor and granite-scented bouquet that opens nicely in the glass, but never fully reveals itself at this early stage. The palate is medium-bodied with chalky tannins, tightly wound red berry fruit interlaced with orange rind and sea salt. I suspect this may clam up for a few years so either commit infanticide...or find a cellar. (NM) Inner quote mark (6/2015)

91 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark The bottom half of this 7.4-acre vineyard dates to 1975, while the upper half was replanted in 2013. Its chalks soils give a fragrant, rosy Nuits, a formidably concentrated wine that keeps a skinny profile. It’s fresh and high-toned, with oak adding notes of star anise and dark coffee. Several tasters noted the wine’s dual nature, which one described as “pretty, and also masculine.” Inner quote mark (10/2015)

91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark This is expressive, boasting black cherry, raspberry, spice and kirsch notes. Firm, ending with a lingering hint of sweet fruit and spice. Knits all the elements together nicely. Best from 2018 through 2030. Inner quote mark (6/2015)

89-91 points Int'l Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Slightly high-toned aromas of raspberry, spices and stone. Sweet, pliant and thick but with good inner-mouth lift from calcaire. Lovely fruit intensity here in a slightly cooler style. Finishes with sweet tannins and good juicy length. Makes the Corvees Pagets seem a bit rustic by comparison. (ST) Inner quote mark (1/2014)

90 points Burghound

Outer quote mark A relatively high-toned and markedly cool and airy nose of pure red Pinot fruit and floral aromas are laced with hints of wood and the sauvage. There is a racy and intense feel to the delineated and notably mineral-inflected middle weight flavors that possess fine depth and richness on the solidly persistent finale. This is a generous yet refined effort that should drink well young if desired. Inner quote mark (1/2015)


Outer quote mark The 2012 Nuits St. Georges Clos du Thorey is an addition to the Vougeraie range. Sweet floral notes, spices and crushed red berries all lift out of the glass in a wine that shows the more finessed side of Nuits. The Clos du Thorey is pretty... (AG) Inner quote mark (1/2014)
