2008 Nuits St Georges Les Pruliers

Domaine Jean Grivot

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. Jun 2010, www.robertparker.com
