2008 Lucien Le Moine Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru "Les Saint-Georges"

SKU #1452641 93-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark “In December, it was still impossible to taste,” remarks Saouma of his two barrels of 2008 Nuits St.-Georges Les St.-Georges. Smoked meat, peat, and humus mingle with red and black currant in the nose, while a whiff of heliotrope or vanilla hovers in the background. Rich yet bright fruit and dark earthiness spread across the palate underlain by abundant but exceedingly fine tannins and this finishes with added hints of toasted nuts and brown spices, and with the palate-staining and resonant sense of energy that accrues to all of the finest red Burgundies of its vintage. This beauty should have a two-decade potential and indeed deserves to be locked up for at least the next half dozen years. (DS) Inner quote mark (6/2010)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Medium red. Aromatic nose offers red berries, minerals, menthol and mint. Classically dry, rich and minerally; a rather uncompromising, low-fat, structured wine with no easy sweetness. Finishes impressively long, with broad, dusty tannins. (ST) 92+ Inner quote mark (3/2011)

90-92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark A touch of reduction is not enough to completely block the red currant and floral aromas that move into textured and highly seductive middle weight flavors that possess good volume and a sleek muscularity on the strikingly persistent finish. This is very backward at present and could surprise to the upside. *Outstanding* Inner quote mark (4/2010)
