Tasting Notes

The 2015 Nuits St Georges Les Murgers des Cras actually contains 60% from Les Richemoines that until 2014 was bottled separately. It has an intense floral bouquet with red cherries, crushed strawberry, cassis and crushed violets that soar from the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, well-judged acidity, quite dense in the mouth but there is race and tension here. Very focused as it sashays to the finish, this is a stylish Nuits St Georges that should give drinking pleasure over 12-15 years, possibly more. Neal Martin - Wine Advocate
