The 2016 Nuits Saint Georges 1er Cru Les Saint Georges has a very pretty, sensual bouquet with bright red cherries, blackcurrant, wilted rose petals and mineral aromas that appear to gain intensity with aeration. The palate is very well balanced with fine tannin, quite linear and strict at the moment, but you have to really stand back and admire the focus, energy and panache of this Les Saint-Georges. Great persistence on the classy finish that does not overdo it. Neal Martin – The Wine Advocate

Bright medium red. Discreet, pristine scents of dark cherry, flowers and crushed rock. Wonderfully rich and fine-grained, offering outstanding inner-mouth tension to its medicinal red cherry and licorice flavors complicated by minerals, spices and flowers. Less accessible today than the Cailles (Chevillon noted that in November it was the other way around) but this wine really dances on the palate and rises inexorably on the sappy, mouthcoating finish. Stephen Tanzer – Vinous Media

Tasting note: An almost as elegant and even more beautifully layered nose than the Cailles, offers up a beguiling combination of pure red berry fruit aromas that display nuances of game, earth and soft spice notes. There is excellent phenolic maturity to the delicious and impressively intense flavors that possess plenty of mid-palate fat before culminating in a vibrant, intense and impeccably well-balanced if distinctly austere finish. This is an almost painfully intense and powerful wine that is fashioned in a take-no-prisoners style. Patience required. Outstanding – Allen Meadows - Burghound
