Waxy black cherry aromas can be detected in the nose of the thick seductive 2002 Nuits-St.-Georges Clos des Porrets St.-Georges. Medium to full-bodied and sensual it slathers the palate with velvety tar-laced blackberries. This wine has immensely impressive depth purity and length. Projected maturity: 2007-2016.

Juicy tightly wound and impressively intense with bright flavors of dark berries violet and mint. A step up in fruit intensity and length from the foregoing samples. Finishes juicy and persistent with suave tannins and a pronounced mineral component.

The bouquet offers up a youthful constellation of cherries, pomegranate, nutskin, fresh herb tones, a touch of the red curry to come, woodsmoke and a very nice signature of soil (particularly for a 2002). On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and nascently complex, with a great core of red fruit, tangy acids, lovely focus and grip, a fine chassis of ripe tannin and a long, bright and classy finish. The palate here does not (today?) convey quite the same sense of soil as the nose promises, but this may just be a reflection of the relative youth of the ’02 Clos des Porrets, which still needs another six or seven years of bottle age to really start to blossom. It is a lovely wine, and if more terroir arrives with further aging, then my score will seem a bit conservative.
