Ripe, elegant and dense aromas of blue and black pinot fruit plus floral nuances and one can smell the concentration of the rich, thick, mouth coating and impressively scaled flavors that stain the palate with chewy pinot extract and culminates in a textured, structured and superbly long finish that should be capable of extended aging. Magnificent. Drink: 2020+.Comments: sweet spot outstanding!
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.
