Forey's 2006 Nuits-St.-Georges Les St.-Georges (raised in all new barrels) combines lightly-cooked cherry, brown spices, and cocoa powder reminiscent of the corresponding Perrieres with red meat and crushed stone, with these carnal and mineral flavor dimensions becoming insistently persistent in the finish. There is in fact a tactile and illusive, peaty, somehow ore-like mineral dimension here that reminds me a bit of an Urgestein Gruner Veltliner or a schistic Roussillon red, analogies I can only hope won't be treated as sacrilegious or in anyway denigrating to a red Burgundy. This combines flattering youthful richness of fruit with verve and proportionality – consistent with particularly outstanding 2006 results with this site at other addresses – and should be worth following for at least 6-8 years.
