2012 Nuits St Georges Clos de Thorey Domaine de la Vougeraie

Average critic rating : 91.0 points



A relatively high-toned and markedly cool and airy nose of pure red pinot fruit and floral aromas are laced with hints of the sauvage. There is a racy and intense feel to the delineated and notably mineral-inflected middle weight flavors that possess really fine depth on the linear and solidly persistent finale. Tasted: Jan 15, 2014. Drink: 2020+



Impressive out of barrel, the 2012 Nuits St Georges 1er Cru Clos des Thorey is beginning to fulfill its potential in bottle. It has a conservative but detailed, forest floor and granite-scented bouquet that opens nicely in the glass, but never fully reveals itself at this early stage. The palate is medium-bodied with chalky tannins, tightly wound red berry fruit interlaced with orange rind and sea salt. I suspect this may clam up for a few years so either commit infanticide...or find a cellar. eRobertParker.com.June, 2015

Domainede la Vougeraie was created in 1999 when Jean-Claude Boisset decided to collate all of his vineyard holdings from his various negociant companies under one name. The name is inspired by Boisset’s significant holdings in the village of Vougeot and the domaine itself covers over 25 hectares of vineyards more than 20 different appellations. With six grand crus (Musigny,BonnesMares, Closde Vougeot, Charmes-ChambertinLes Mazoyères, CortonClos du Roi and Corton Charlemagne En Charlemagne), Domaine de la Vougeraie is one of Burgundy’s leading domaines.The premier and grand cru vineyards are all farmed biodynamically and yields are carefully restricted. Winemaker Pierre Vincent favours a delicate approach: hand sorting, cool maceration and the grapes are only punched down once a day. This results in elegant, complex wines which are of consistently high quality.
