Côte-de-Nuits

Nuits-Saint-Georges

Nuits-Saint-Georges is the home of some stunnig reds in the Côte de Nuits.

Although it rests on the southern border of Vosne-Romanée home to a set of incredible Grand Cru vineyards, Nuits-Saint-Georges has no Grand Cru’s of its own. Many would argue that one or two of the Premier Cru vineyards are worthy of an upgrade.

It’s uncanny how many times I’ve had a village Nuits from a good producer with 10-15 years of bottle age and remarked on both the quality and beauty of the wine.

Nuits produces virtually 100% Pinot Noir. There are a couple of sneaky whites, literally, made in Nuits. Henri Gouges makes a Pinot ‘Gouges’, a Blanc mutation of Pinot Noir, and a couple of Chardonnay’s from Domaine de l’Arlot.

The wines of Nuits like any village varying significantly. The sites toward the south tend to be more masculine. The sites to the north closer to Vosne-Romanée tend to be more feminine. They can offer incredible complexity and vitality.

Villages

David Duband Nuits-Saint-Georges 2018

‘(from La Charmotte, Aux Saints-Juliens and Les Plateaux). A pungent nose is comprised at present by notes of reduction and wood toast. Otherwise there is excellent volume and mid-palate density to the powerful and muscular medium-bodied flavors that deliver outstanding depth and persistence on the robust and rustic finale. This outstanding if quite serious villages level wine is very Nuits in basic character. Drink 2028+.’ Burghound.com January 2020.

David Duband Nuits-Saint-Georges 2019

"A relatively airy and cool nose freely offers up notes of various red berries, earth and a floral top note. The sleek and relatively refined middle weight flavors contrast somewhat with the youthfully austere and mildly rustic finale that exhibits slightly better depth and persistence on the more structured finale. This is quite a good Nuits villages and worth a look. ♥" Allen Meadows, Burghound

1er Cru

David Duband Nuits-Saint-Greorges 1er Cru ‘Les Proces’ 2019

"Aromatically this too is markedly floral in character with its discreetly spiced nose of high-toned red currant, pomegranate and soft earth influence. There is both good vibrancy and detail to the round and seductively textured medium-bodied flavors that possess fine length on the balanced finish if not quite the same lovely complexity. This mildly austere effort should age well over the medium to even longer-term. Drink 2030+." Allen Meadows, Burghound

David Duband Nuits-Saint-Greorges 1er Cru ‘Aux Thorey’ 2019

"A distinctly cool nose is also quite spicy with its array of red currant, cherry and plum. The nicely textured and relatively sophisticated medium weight flavors exude a subtle minerality on the balanced, focused and impressively persistent finish that, like the Clos Sorbé, has a bitter cherry pit character. This is pretty much textbook Aux Thorey. ♥" Allen Meadows, Burghound

1er Cru

Domaine Louis Boillot Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru ‘les Prûliers’ 2016

Boillot has always done a remarkable job with this vineyard and 2016 will only add to that track record. There is gorgeous complexity to the fresh and notably ripe red berry fruit, humus and pungent earth scented nose. The succulent, dense and powerful broad-shouldered flavors brim with copious dry extract that mostly manages to buffer the very firm tannic spine on the superbly long finish that flashes just a trace of Nuits style rusticity. This very serious and built-to-age effort is breathtaki

David Duband Gevrey-Chambertin 2019

"Here too there is a whiff of herbal tea to be found on the fresh red berry scents that are cut with hints of the sauvage. Here too there is an attractive texture to the medium-bodied flavors that exude evident minerality on the firmer, more complex and more persistent finale." Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Henri Gouges Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru ‘Les Pruliers’ 2019

It hard to talk about Nuits-Saint-Georges without talking about Henri Gouges. For near a century the Domaine has quietly been working away to expand their holding and continually improve their wines. "This is also quite firmly reduced and unreadable at present. Otherwise there is equally good energy and delineation to the slightly more refined though still dense and muscular medium-bodied flavors that possess just a bit more depth on the similar finish that is muscular, serious and youthfully
