Tasting Notes

Vinous – 90

The 2011 Nuits Saint-Georges Clos des Forêts Saint Georges 1er Cru has a refined but focused bouquet with finely tuned dark cherry, strawberry and subtle Earl Grey scents that gain vigour with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, quite supple in the mouth with a gentle grip – raspberry coulis, strawberry and a touch of cedar towards the finish, satisfyingly long with impressive delineation. Very fine. Tasted at Flint Wines Burgundy 2011 tasting. [Neal Martin, 07/05/2019]

Robert Parker – 90

Tasted blind at the Burgundy 2011 horizontal tasting in Beaune. The Nuits Saint Georges Clos des Forets St Georges 2011 is closed on the nose compared to the Clos de l’Arlot: rather subdued with blackberry and sous-bois notes trying to get out from the glass with which they seem tethered. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp tannins, lithe red cherries and strawberry fruit with a taut and linear, quite spicy finish that lingers nicely. Very fine ” but it needs another 3-4 years in bottle. [Neal Martin, 30/09/2014]

Anticipated maturity: 2016-2026 – 16.5

7.11 ha. 15-20,000 bottles. In 2011 they made seven different parcels from different points on the hill. They will not be bottled separately. We were shown three of the seven and a proposed final blend. Sample 1: Bottom of the hill 60-70 cm of soil on calcaire. Quite intense and smooth and concentrated. With a bit of mineral chew on the end. Flattering and quite open. But a bit tough on the end. Score 16, Drink 2016-25 Sample 2: Top of the hill Thinner soil, only 30 cm, with lots of gravel and then mother rock of either calcaire de premeaux or limestone. Very dark crimson. Very rich and round with deep flavours. And then much more obvious structure than sample 1. Really quite dry, but not drying, on the finish. Score 16.5, Drink 2018-27 Sample 3: Middle of the hill Complex because of a geological fault. Deep soils, orange silt left by underground rivers, and then very varied mother rock. Light nose, less assertive than sample 2. But it’s sweet and heady. Really rather seductive. Intense fruitiness. Polish and there is real depth on the finish. Score 16.5, Drink 2017-25 Sample 4: Final blend of Clos des Forêts 15% whole bunch, 50% new oak. Mid crimson. Well mannered without being really exciting on the nose. Real energy on the palate – drive and zest, which are bonuses in 2011. And a bit more weight than the components. Long and racy. The overall score is for the blend. [29/04/2013]

Anticipated maturity: 2018-2028
