2018 Domaine Sylvain Cathiard Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru "Aux Thorey"

SKU #1544882 92-94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2018 Nuits Saint-Georges Aux Thorey 1er Cru felt a little subdued when I tasted it from barrel; perhaps it is closing down more quickly than its siblings as the winter cold settles in the cellar. The palate is medium-bodied with chalky tannins and a little angular at the moment, but there is ample freshness on the graphite-tinged finish. A more aloof and serious Aux Thorey than in the past. It will be fascinating to see how this shows once in bottle. (NM) Inner quote mark (1/2020)

91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Offering up notes of wild berries, peonies and spices, framed by rich soil tones and a deft touch of oak, the 2018 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Aux Thorey is medium to full-bodied, velvety and layered, with a deep core of fruit, lively acids and a beautifully defined finish. (WK) Inner quote mark (1/2020)

92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark A cooler, airier and more elegant nose reflects the ripe essence of various red berries cut with lavender and spice and earth whiffs. The vibrant, intense and refined medium weight flavors possess a succulent mid-palate that contrasts with the moderately austere, serious and firm finish that offers fine depth and persistence. Patience advised. *Outstanding* Inner quote mark (1/2021)

K&L Notes

91-94 points Jasper Morris for Inside Burgundy: "A late malolactic fermentation shows in the reductive nose. Complete and correct deep raspberry nose with the same crystalline thread through the palate which keeps the vintage fresh. More raspberry at the finish this time."
