From Fleurieres, Herbues and Aux Sts Jacques, bright crimson purple, and not too ripe in fruit profile, this has an excellent structure with just the right tannins and correct acidity. All in deep red fruit, not too plummy, a balanced and consistent overall Nuits-St-Georges. **** 90-92/100, Jasper Morris MW.
The 2020 Nuits Saint-Georges Village is a blend of Aux Allots and Fleurieres, has a delineated and quite pure bouquet that opens nicely in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red berry fruit, fine definition, segueing into darker berries fruit laced with pepper on the finish. Very fine. 89-91/100, Neal Martin.
