2016 Domaine Faiveley Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru "Les Porêts Saint-Georges"

SKU #1352301 91-93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark (the crop was reduced 30% by frost): Bright ruby-red. A touch of reduction to the aromas of black raspberry and menthol. A step up in richness and fullness from the foregoing Nuits-Saint-Georges examples, conveying sexy sweetness to its flavors of dark cherry and dark chocolate complicated by a hint of white fruits. In a sweeter, generous style in the context of the vintage, with the wine's big dusty tannins nicely supported by its relatively full body.(ST) Inner quote mark (1/2018)

90-92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark The airy and expressive nose is compositionally similar to that of the Damodes if perhaps with few spice elements. By contrast there is a bit more size and weight to the caressing medium weight flavors that possess a beguiling mid-palate texture though the natural rusticity of Porrets comes up on the nicely complex and lingering finish. This is very likely to tighten up considerably once in bottle so patience will be required here too. Inner quote mark (1/2018)

K&L Notes

92pts Jasper Morris (MW): "Dense purple centre, the nose is more backward, more restrained. This is very pure and really classic Nuits with some great minerals behind. I prefer this to Les Damodes for its additional freshness and muscle." (01/2018)
