This was quite strongly reduced and about the only visible aspect is a bit of wood toast. There is fine concentration as the mid-palate benefits from the abundant dry extract that imparts a velvety texture to the intense and round medium weight flavors that culminate in a mildly austere finish that stops a bit short. This is on the disjointed side today but the underlying material appears excellent plus the consistent track record of this wine is such that my range offers the benefit of the doubt. Note that this will require at least a decade of cellar time before it realizes its full potential. Tasted: Jan 14, 2013. Drink: 2021+



Tasted blind at the Burgundy 2011 horizontal tasting in Beaune. Initially the Nuits Saint Georges 1er Cru Les Pruliers seems very reductive on the nose and it serves to neuter the fruit profile. The palate is chewy on the entry with moderate acidity, sappy red berry fruit that dovetail into what is a rather monochromatic finish that leaves you feeling a little short-changed. I much prefer either the 2010 or 2012. eRobertParker.com.November, 2014
