Tasting Notes

♥ SWEET SPOT / OUTSTANDING - BURGHOUND | The 2013 Nuits St. Georges Aux Cras sticks out a bit in this lineup of mostly Vosne wines, even if Cras sits on the northern edge of Nuits. Firm, incisive tannins give the Cras its spine and sense of energy. Dark red cherry and hard candy notes abound in this beautiful, finely-sculpted Burgundy. The 2013 finishes with substantial energy; a classic combination of Nuits structure and Vosne fruit. The Cras continues to open up in the glass. Sadly, in barrel tastings, the ability to follow a wine for hours just doesn't exist. This is an impressive effort, though, and a wine of considerable potential. Antonio Galloni
