Tasting Notes

Burghound, January 2014, Score: 91-94

This is easily the most sauvage wine of the range with its nose of smoked meat, plum, cassis, humus and plenty of underbrush. There is a distinctly earthy character to the rich, intense and broad-shouldered flavors that exude a focused power before culminating in a concentrated, long and very serious finish. This brooding and very backward effort will require a long siesta in the cellar before it will be approachable. Drink 2026+

Region

Nuits-Saint-Georges, Red Burgundy

The second largest town after Beaune, Nuits St. Georges is known for ample wines that have textured tannins and rich fruit. Unlike other famous Côte de Nuits villages, it has no Grand Crus but does have a handful of exceptional premier cru vineyards such as Clos de l'Arlot, Les Pruliers and AuxMurgers. Its wines can be occasionally rustic, and this sets them apart from many of the more northern appellations as well as from the neighbouring Côte de Beaune whose wines (apart from Pommard) tend to be less structured and more fruit forward. This is no doubt due to a slightly increased presence of clay especially on the Primeaux-Prissey area of the appellation. Notable producers include Domaine de l'Arlot, Jean Grivot and Meo-Camuzet.
