"A pretty and perfumed nose speaks of red berries and earth and the latter can be found in abundance on the relatively refined medium-bodied flavors that terminate in a mildly austere finale. This is really quite good and also worth considering for a wine that should drink well both young and with a few years of bottle age."

"The 2016 Nuits Saint-Georges Villages has an open-knit, crushed strawberry and woodland scented nose, almost malic in style perhaps due to the 70% stem addition. The palate is fleshy with ample grip, very sappy in style with blackberry and tart red fruit on the finish that lingers in the mouth. What an excellent Village Cru!"
