Average critic rating : 90.5 points



A ripe and deeply pitched nose of plum, warm earth and dried rose petal gives way to lightly spiced medium-bodied flavors that are at once rich but fresh and offer ample volume on the intense and lingering finish. I like the mouth feel as there is enough sap to buffer the solid structural elements. Allen Meadows, Burghound, Jan30,2010.



Blond tobacco, faded lily, iris, blackberry, red currant, and rhubarb on the nose of Grivot’s 2008 Nuits-St.-Georges Les Pruliers lead to a bright, invigoratingly tart and saline yet creamily-textured palate underlain by marrowy-rich meat stock. Abundant, fine-grained tannin does nothing to halt either the flow of primary fruit juiciness or of saliva in response. A hint of cherry pit bitterness and savory salinity help extend the finish. Grivot is managing to capture a vivacious, almost delicate side of Nuits-St.-Georges, especially evident in this instance. I wouldn’t be surprised to witness this take on depth with time, and certainly expect it will be worth following for at least 10-12 years. David Schildknecht, The Wine Advocate Jun 2010
